TIPS For Viewing 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.

The best atmospheric conditions for viewing occurs during the transitions from winter to spring and fall to winter.

April, October, and November are the most popular months for northern lights activity across North America.

It’s more common to see the northern lights in winter as the night skies are darker longer.

The northern lights are most visible between 9:30 pm and 2:00 am.

The visibility does not generally last for more than 15-20 minutes unless you’re deep within the auroral ovation.
