The Northern Lights can generally be seen between the months of November and March, in certain places are visible even throughout the year.
From the end of November to the end of March in the area of the northern lights - at latitudes 65-72 degrees in the northern hemisphere - the solar particles collide with atmospheric gases, giving life to light trails with the most amazing colors.
In some places the northern lights, however, are visible all year round. The Sun has a cycle that lasts 11 years, during which the frequency of magnetic storms increases and consequently the possibility of witnessing an aurora borealis.
The 2017 year has been one of the most active years of the solar cycle, now the strength is diminishing but is still strong, thus there is big chances to witness it.
