So many people would like to see the Northern Lights. I was a fortunate person who has had many opportunities while living in Alaska.
I lived in Fairbanks for three and half years. It was bitter cold in the winter (neg. 40 deg) but what an experience!
Black night skies during the day in the winter, dog sled races, skiing, Mt. Denali National Park, moose running freely through the streets, it was an amazing experience.
If you want to see the N.L. you have to go far enough up north, into Canada, or Alaska, etc. in the early spring (or winter) when the sky is still dark most of the time.
They are a phenomenon worth seeing!!!
