History oF NORTHERN LiGHTS

The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, have enchanted humans for centuries with their mystical and otherworldly displays. Ancient cultures believed they were divine manifestations or celestial spirits. In modern times, we’ve come to understand that they result from the interaction between solar particles and Earth’s magnetic field, creating a breathtaking natural spectacle in polar skies. Today, they continue to inspire awe and wonder among those fortunate enough to witness their magical dance of colors.

The word aurora is derived from the name of the Roman goddess of the dawn, Aurora, who travelled from east to west announcing the coming of the sun.

Frequently asked questions

The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, are a natural light display in the Earth’s sky, predominantly seen in high-latitude regions near the Arctic or Antarctic. They are caused by the collision of charged particles from the sun with atoms in the Earth’s atmosphere.

The best time to see the Northern Lights is during the winter months when the nights are longer and darker. In general, the optimal viewing season runs from late September to late March.

Prime locations to witness the Northern Lights include regions near the magnetic poles, such as Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Canada, and Alaska. Locations with minimal light pollution and clear skies offer the best viewing experiences.

The colors in the Northern Lights are determined by the type of gas particles colliding in the Earth’s atmosphere. Oxygen typically produces green and red colors, while nitrogen can create purple, pink, and blue hues.

The duration of a Northern Lights display can vary from a few minutes to several hours. The intensity and length of the display depend on solar activity, atmospheric conditions, and geographical location.

Scientists use solar activity forecasts to predict potential Northern Lights displays. Several websites and apps provide forecasts based on solar wind, sunspot activity, and geomagnetic conditions, offering insights into when and where the lights might appear.

Dress warmly in multiple layers, including thermal clothing, a waterproof jacket, insulated pants, gloves, a hat, and sturdy boots. The temperatures in Northern Lights viewing areas can be extremely cold.

To capture the Northern Lights, use a DSLR or mirrorless camera with manual settings, a wide-angle lens, a tripod for stability, and a remote shutter release. Set the camera to a high ISO, a wide aperture, and a slow shutter speed to capture the faint lights.
