Watching the northern lights is an incredible experience. And, if you’re lucky enough, you may see them this week here in the Kawarthas. Of course, optimal viewing happens away from city lights.
The mystery of the Aurora Borealis is explained by the Northern Lights Centre:
The bright dancing lights of the aurora are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as ‘Aurora borealis’ in the north and ‘Aurora australis’ in the south.
Good luck! And be sure to let us know if you get to see this beautiful spectacle up in the sky!!
