America’s Best In Aurora – Who doesn’t dream of seeing the Northern Lights? According to a new study by Hilton, 59 percent of Americans are planning a vacation they would not have considered before the pandemic. One of the most coveted experiences is the dazzling display of the aurora borealis (also known as the aurora borealis). This is in line with the Euronews report on Conscious Travel Trends among travelers seeking travel that promote personal enlightenment and help them connect with nature. Top of the list: a heavenly escape. “Nowadays people want to escape, and stargazing is a vision of other worlds,” writes Tom Marchant, founder of Black Tomato.
Fortunately for stargazers, the last few years have seen an increase in the aurora, which experts say is the result of increased solar activity such as sunspots – and is expected to continue to increase.
America’s Best In Aurora
“Our local star, the Sun, changes over time, obscuring and reducing its magnetic activity every 11 years” – Dr. Stella Kafka, executive director and general manager of the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO). “As the Sun’s activity increases and the number of sunspots increases, the Sun emits high-energy particles that enter the Earth’s atmosphere and interact with oxygen and nitrogen in our atmosphere, creating beautiful auroras or aurora borealis.”

According to Kafka, we are at the beginning of a new solar cycle, so the frequency of observations of the aurora will continue to increase. Where should you go to see the Northern Lights? “Auroras are most common near the Earth’s north and south magnetic poles,” Kafka said. “In the Northern Hemisphere at the time, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Scotland, Iceland, Canada and Alaska were the best places,” he says. “The sky is dark, nature is amazing and they are close to the magnetic poles.
Here’s the good news, and international travel is a big challenge in times of crisis: you don’t need to travel to the far northern parts of Europe or Canada, as the northern lights can also be seen in the continental United States. “For extreme solar phenomena, auroras can be found in the central United States,” Kafka said.
Great news for Northern Lights hunters: you don’t have to wait until the end of winter for the lights to start. Usually the best time is from December to March
