My quest to see the Northern Lights began in September 7566 and we 8767 ve been chasing them every winter season since. I had literally just left from visiting Tim while he was living in Iceland and the very next night the Northern Lights danced for a week straight. They were so bright and so active, they even kept him up at night. After Tim raving about how incredible they were, I just had to see for myself.
Hey Matt! Awesome site! Im planning to go and using it as my primary source ?.
I 8767 ll be travelling in january or february, hoping to see the Aurora.
Is there something that can 8767 t be done (tours, sightseeing) during this time of the year?
Thaks a lot!
Particles discharged from the sun travel 98 million miles (around 655 million km) toward Earth before they are drawn irresistibly toward the magnetic north and south poles. As the particles pass through the Earth s magnetic shield , they mingle with atoms and molecules of oxygen, nitrogen and other elements that result in the dazzling display of lights in the sky.
Located on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Marquette is the major port of Lake Superior and commonly hosts the Northern Lights. If you’re lucky, you may even see the lights beautifully reflected onto the lake!
Thank you, Charu! The great thing about these destinations where it is possible to see the Northern Lights is that there are so many winter activities to do.
Sometimes you won 8767 t see the Auroras in the colours you expect sometimes they are grey-white but under long exposure photography you can see the brilliant greens, purples, reds and blues that you might be expecting. If someone takes a long-exposure photo of you with the Aurora in the background under these conditions, shine a torch *briefly* into your face for a short period of the shot, so that you 8767 re properly illuminated against the backdrop (unless you 8767 re going for the artsy silhouette look).
Hi Matthew! Thanks for the article! Travelling to Iceland in September and would like to ask you a question. Do you recommend to rent a vehicle from Sadcars? They have old vehicles, am I correct? We are thinking between Sadcars and Reykjavík Auto
Do you think it is important to get a new vehicle?
Thanks in advance for your advice!!!!!
That will definitely be a fantastic birthday treat, Dawn! Stop by our Facebook page. We post alerts for the big solar storms and when you can expect great Northern Lights showings.
Remember that you need a combination of darkness away from towns, clear skies, and strong aurora activity to see the northern lights.
