Unusual setting for Northern Lights

It's Friday and time to end a busy week with a beautiful picture. The picture today features one of the most beautiful phenomena of the Earth's atmosphere, the Northern Lights or aurora borealis. These majestic lights can be seen also on the southern hemisphere where they are called Southern Lights or aurora australis.

The setting of this stunning image, however, is very unusual. The picture seemingly taken though a window, which has distinctly Arabic features. So where was it taken?

We'll leave it to you to ponder over the weekend, and we will solve the puzzle on Monday.

Have a good weekend!
