....has a deal to see the Northern Lights. I doubt I can afford it this side of Christmas but hopefully the deal will crop up again in the new year. Also, it’s a deal for two sharing a room so I need to find someone to come with me! 13 months ago

Since I live in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, I would seem that the best place to see the Aurora Borealis would be in Alaska.
An Alaskan cruise would be nice where I wouldn’t have to drive. If I do a cruise, I would like to do some SIGHTSEEING (excursions) on the way.
There might be some OTHER options to see the Northern Lights like visit Norway (or some other place), but currently I have no passport nor family (that I am aware of) in other countries. Although, it WOULD be a fun experience.
Maybe someone out there might share some places where I might enjoy this experience?14 months ago
This is a delayed post, but I want to make sure I record this anyway. A few weeks ago there was a big solar flare. The news reports said there was a slight chance of seeing the aurora borealis in our area, so I piled my dogs in the car after dark and drove out to a remote area. There were no lights and you could see the sky for miles. We pulled off on the side of the road and just looked at the sky. No aurora borealis, but what a beautiful experience anyway!! There were frogs chirping the moon was big and bright and the breeze was just perfect!
That night as I was getting ready for bed, I kept peeking out the window for one last possible glimpse. I read that the solar flares are supposed to peak next year – perhaps I should take a winter trip to Iceland (I don’t need anyone to twist my arm to go back there!). 20 months ago
This. From my own driveway, after the most amazing weekend of encountering and worshipping the living King. 22 months ago

I did try to see the Aurora but it just wasn’t the right time… Norway and Sweden were great though.

...next month I want to travel to Tromso, Norway to attempt seeing the aurora. It’s a very good chance because I’m living in Denmark these months. Maybe a dream will come true… 2 years ago
I live in the continental US and just want to let people know you don’t need to travel to Alaska or Norway or any place too far away if you want to see northern lights. 25 years ago I witnessed a remarkable display of northern lights in Ontario Canada. I had seen them there (on the southern shores of Lake Huron) on occasion when I was younger, but in 1984 it was an incredible show that everyone was talking about the next morning. They were literally like pinwheel displays of multiple colors. I have not seen them since… but I just wanted to let people know that they can be seen in Canada. Depending on where you live, you might be able to see them with just a passport and a dependable car. And it IS worth it. 3 years ago
