Yeah, I would like to see the northern Lights too. Dont know when it will happen though.

Would anyone with comments and information about when, where and how to see the northern lights post it here. It is always good to have plenty of information for choosing future travel destinations. Reply to this

We get the Northern Lights here, but I have never seen them. I watch for them and always seem to miss the right time of night. Reply to this

I saw the northern Lights in Yellowknife , Northern Canada
In order to see them clearly you should visit this place in winter Reply to this

Even though they're common I still get excited every time I see them! Something else I'd really like to see one day is the northern lights...but that would involve heading north on my travels and at the moment all plans are south.

Oh! The northern lights! I would also really like to see it too. I live in Toronto, so I guess that would be considered pretty south in Canada. But even so, in the late summer evenings, as the sun sets, the far northern horizon is like a canvas of bright orange and pink shades. If the sky is already so pretty in Toronto, I can't imagine how beautiful it would be up north. Northern lights must be phenomenal.

wow, those photos make me want to see it for real even more! I think I'm going to have to start planning a trip to the wintery north.
I've never heard of a 'southern lights' - is it just a northern hemisphere phenomenon? Reply to this

Of course - the Aurora Australis. However, I think to see them at their best you need to be in Antarctica in winter - not a very nice prospect! Reply to this
