HOW TO FINALLY See The Northern Lights

The northern lights, also known as aurora borealis, are a natural light display in the Earth’s sky.

They occur when charged particles from the sun collide with atoms in the Earth’s upper atmosphere.

Increase the chances by getting north of the 45th parallel in a dark area, wide open to the north.

Time your chase to the new moon cycle (less moonlight means darker skies).

Watch the U.S. Space Weather Prediction Center website for reports of solar storm activity.

Be patient and keep your eyes on the northern sky, Auroras can occur suddenly and are unpredictable.

Nature’s light show can be easy to miss when it is dim because it resembles a wispy gray or white cloud.
