Canada's Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis


Northern Lights Aurora BorealisThe Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, are an interesting phenomenon which we never get tired of watching here at our resort in Northern Ontario Canada. Our remote location at the top of the Canadian Shield, the oldest mountain range in the world, is great for seeing the Aurora Borealis. The slightly higher elevation, clear air, and total lack of light polution allow us to see incredible night skys. We see so many stars that many of the constellation are more difficult to pick out than in more southern locations.

Really intense Northern Lights are like a gossamer curtain of ghostly colours that appear and disappear in patterns that are incredibly captivating and wholly unpredictable. We get good northern lights fairly often however it is difficult to do long term predictions of the quality of the aurora because of the effect of solar activity on their intensity.We get good northern lights on average about once per week That does not mean that they are predictable though. Sometime we go for a couple of week with poor Northern Lights and then a number of nights with incredible northern lights. Every clear night though we have incredible stars.

Most clear nights we see some northern lights however really spectacular northern lights happen only occasionally when the sun produces significant solar activity including solar flares, which interact with the earth's magnetic fields. There are some conditions however which make good northern lights viewing more likely. For better viewing of the Aurora Borealis and the stars in the night sky, you should plan your vacation time for the least amount of moonlight. Also, the later, or earlier in the season you plan your vacation the better. The night gets darker faster and the cooler air is more likely to be clear and haze free. Remember June 21 is the longest day, and shortest night, of the year and when you get as far North as we are this change in daylight is very pronounced. You should be prepared to stay up until at least midnight and perhaps 1:00 am or 2:00 am for for the best chance of really good viewing of the Aurora Borealis if you are staying at our resort in Late June to early July. In May, Lat August and September we see Northern Lights as early as 10:00 pm.

University of Alaska Geophysical Institute website has offers pretty good predictions of Northern Lights activity and explanations of the Aurora Borealis phenomenon. CLICK HERE or view below.
