A stargazer’s dream
The Alaska Northern Lights are truly a sight to behold. The beautiful colors in the sky are caused by electrically-charged particles that penetrate our planet’s atmosphere are high speeds. This then changes the colors of the particles into bright, neon green, blue, and purple.
The northern lights season falls between mid-September and April, with the most vibrant colors appearing in March. Any time you lift your gaze upward, you’ll most likely see hints of the lights spanning across the horizon. You can also see northern lights in countries in Europe and Canada, but some travelers claim that the best sights are in Alaska.
