See the Lights

The aurora borealis — named by astronomer Galileo Galilei for the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and god of the north wind, Boreas — is solar, not seasonal. Displays occur year-round, but are most visible on dark, clear nights. Moonless nights are best, far from city lights that illuminate the atmosphere, fading stars and aurora alike.
