‘Tis The Season To See Norway’s Northern Lights

(SL) – I’ve got to see this before I leave Earth. One of the great wonders of the world for sure.

November through March is the absolute peak time season for Northern Lights viewing because the nights are longest, but a visit anytime between September through March should give you a good chance to see them, with March offering the best chance of clear skies. Just make sure you’re on the lookout between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m. to maximize your chances.

The Northern lights are always happening, it’s just that you don’t see them during the day. While the Arctic Circle’s midnight sun makes it impossible to see them during the summer, the long dark nights of winter are perfect for Northern Lights viewing.
