When Is The Best Time Of The Year To See The Northern Lights


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!
