Northern Lights

Until March you can see one of the most beautiful phenomena of nature. To do this you have to go to the Arctic Circle and further north. In that strip of the Earth, up to 200 nights with aurora borealis can occur each year. The best time of day to view them is about two hours before and after midnight, and they can last anywhere from thirty seconds to several hours. Although you have to go with a good dose of patience, the northern lights are elusive and capricious.
