Seeing the astronomical phenomenon The Northern Lights, a.k.a. Aurora Borealis, is a dream come true for everyone. In order to see them, you need clear, dark skies. Sightings are most likely during the three or four hours around midnight. Also, some people hear them. According to scientists, the upper atmosphere where the lights occur is too thin to carry sound waves, but, many people claim to hear whooshing and crackling noises when there is an Aurora in the sky. Also, i don’t think we need to talk about the views, the photo can speak itself.
