About Northern Lights
The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis is a natural phenomenon that can paint the night sky with unearthly, surreal color. To observers at far-northern latitudes, they're a frequent occurrence, but many who live in more temperate climates have never seen them. As a naturally occurring phenomenon, the appearance of the Northern Lights is notoriously difficult to predict any further in advance than about two hours before it happens.
To see the northern lights requires patience, luck, and the following conditions to be met:
- The night must be as dark as possible (full moon will dim the aurora)
- There should be as little unnatural light (light pollution) as possible
- There should be little to no cloud cover
- There must be enough solar activity
The best places to watch the lights are Iceland, the northern parts of Norway, Sweden and Finland, the northwestern parts of Canada, the southern tip of Greenland and over the coastal waters north of Siberia.
