The aurora borealis is best seen in the northern hemisphere between September and April. It can be spotted all year round in Scandinavia, Alaska and Canada but it has a much stronger effect on the atmosphere when there’s a full moon to add even more light pollution to the mix. The best time of day for viewing varies from place to place so check out www.aurorascience.com/find-aurora or download their app for your smart phone before you go!
Is it safe? How do I stay safe? Is there anything else I should know?
