Have you lived in Alaska several months
or even years, and never have seen the aurora?
Visitors, are you here specifically to see the aurora?
WE SEE IT SEVERAL TIMES PER WEEK!
How to see the aurora:
- Get away from all sources of man made light and city light pollution.
- Drive to clear skies or wait for clouds to clear. If you can see stars, aurora can be seen if the aurora is out.
- Sometimes the aurora is faint, and sometimes bright. You must be patient and wait for it to change.
- After seeing the aurora, do not ask “is that it?” unless the sun is rising. Keep watching and waiting, as it comes and goes.
