  • The northern lights are amazing but what you see on a picture isn't the same like what you see with the naked eye. This video gives an explanation about the four stages you can experience seeing the aurora borealis.

    I've never seen a video of the Northern Lights that isn't sped up x20.

    Thanks. This video was VERY helpful. I have a trip planned to Alaska, and although I would really like to admire them in full display, I would be happy with just seeing stage two. 🤞🏾

    hi Jan
    thanks for showing this video because I was going to plan to visit Norway to try hard because that is not easy for me to travel too expansive tour .... there is no values of money against life nature and time... internet and TV shows different if I came and looking around sky that may be heartbroken to me but when they got pics like coloured sky

    very accurate - excellent video, photo, visual and descriptive points! as with everything astronomical, there are better nights and conditions for seeing than others. i was fortunate enough to be stationed in keflavik iceland for the winter, and we were spoiled by incedible displays, but not every night, and i'm sure we missed many awesome displays due to weather. but that one or two experiences of the 'stage 4' aurora as you describe, makes the journey and experience well worth it! great video!

    Way down in New England we had a magenta pink sky very vivid auroras lasted for an hour, we all stood outside watching it not realizing it was x ray radiation! Fifteen minutes later we all had a bad headache and side effects from THE CME that caused the beautiful sky 18 years ago.

    Good explanation ! , its not too difficult to see stages 1-3 on a clear night in the aurora belt , but I would add a few more stages, if your lucky.

    I spent like 12 years living beyond the polar circle and man I know what you feel. I've seen it like once or twice at all and it was anything but exciting, just some pale green glow in the sky like some kind of flames somewhere far far away from you. So boring that you are like "oh, is this what I think it is I am not impressed, let's carry on with my current tasks (play snowball or dig in a snow pile), this stuff isn't worth my attention". Probably the most overrated thing in the world it is.
