Norway Northern Lights

#AuroraBorealis – Fire in the Sky. This mesmerizing phenomenon feels just like God weaving his magic in the sky. Like god’s every creation it is absolutely stunning & artistic..

It’s like a celestial ballet of light dancing across the night sky, with a color palette (green, pink, violet) obtained from a really cool fashion show from the 1980s. You can see pictures or videos of it, but only those lucky enough to experience it first hand can fully comprehend the almost divine attraction that the northern lights possess.

To the locals in Northern parts of Norway, the northern lights are a part of their life, as they light up the night sky in surroundings dominated by snow, rugged mountains and harbors. In this area the aurora has been, and still is, a fertile source for art, mythology and legends.

It’s important to remember that aurora can be a bit of a diva, and she will only start the show when she feels the time is right. Patience is a virtue, also when chasing the northern lights. But here’s how you maximize your chances of a sighting: The lights are at their most frequent in late autumn and winter/early spring. Between late September and late March, it is dark between 6pm and 1am, and you have the best chances of spotting the lights.
