Hi Globies

Did you ever see aurora borealis? I did not...

Can anybody confirm that I'll have my chance to see

this phenomena if I'll stop for 2-3 days in Anchorage

at the beginning of March?

Any experience? Maybe I have to go to Fairbanks?

Thanks

Wojtek

Hi Wojtek,



I remember that friends of us, living in Fairbanks, told us that you can see them frequently around spring and fall and that (for example) Fairbanks or Denali are a good place. But even in Anchorage you might have a good chance...



Maybe these websites are helpful:

Good luck, Christian

Anywhere north of 60 gives you a good chance to see the Northern Lights, as it occurs about 100 times a year (once every 3 three days or so) up there. Still, the farther north you are the more likely that you'll see it.



A good website for Aurora info and prediction is this one;

I tried to see the lights from Alaska but missed them because of a full moon.
