Don’t Miss: The Northern Lights in North Finland

January 20, 2012 by

Something amazing happening in the Arctic, the Aurora Borealis or the Northern lights filling the night sky with swirls, streaks and arcs of color, which glow and throb for anything from a minute or two to an hour. This year the Northern Lights will be brighter than they ever been for the last 50 years.

The Northern Lights happens when gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere collide with charged particles released from the sun’s atmosphere.This year due to the sun’s magnetic field around the equator rotating faster than at the poles, the light show is at its most vivid.

One of the best spot to see it is Northern Finland.
