WHAT ARE NORTHERN LIGHTS?
The shining dancing lights of the aurora are basically accidents with electrically charged particles from the sun that enter our atmosphere. All the lights are seen on top of the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. This is known as 'Aurora borealis' in the north and 'Aurora australis' in the south..
Auroral projects appear in various colors, light green and pink are the most common colors. Types of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet have also been listed. The lights appear in many formations. These are facts about the northern lights or how to see the northern lights.
WHERE IS THE BEST PLACE TO WATCH THE NORTHERN LIGHTS?
Northern Lights can be best seen in the northern or southern hemisphere, in the oddly shaped oval centred over each of the magnetic poles. These lights are known as 'Aurora borealis' in the north and 'Aurora australis' in the south. Researchers have learned that in most instances northern and southern auroras are equally like mirrored images that occur at the same time, with similar shapes and colors.
Because the event occurs near the magnetic poles, northern lights have been seen as far south as New Orleans in the western hemisphere. However the top place to view and experience the lights are in the northwestern parts of Canada, specifically the Yukon, Nunavut, Northwest Territories and Alaska. Auroral displays can also be seen over the southern tip of Greenland and Iceland, the northern coast of Norway and over the waters north of Siberia. Southern auroras are not often visible as they are concentrated in a ring around Antarctica and the southern Indian Ocean.
