The astonishing sights of the northern lights should be on everyone`s bucket list with fascinating displays of vibrant colorful lights that can be seen from locations in North America. The Aurora Oval, where the lights are concentrated and circle the north magnetic pole is elusive and all depend on location. Alaska, Canada, and some North American states happen to be ideally positioned to see the spectacular show. Depending on the weather, darkness, cloud cover, and solar wind activity these incredible lights can be best seen in the winter and from locations such as Fairbanks, AK, with 100 acres of forest and almost 250 nights where the swirling lights can be seen, Yellowknife and Whitehorse, CA, and from the Flathead Forest and Glacier National Park in Montana in late winter when the nights are the longest and clearest.
