Information about the Northern Lights

What are the Northern Lights

The northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, are a natural phenomenon that occurs in the Earth’s polar regions. They are a mesmerizing display of lights in the night sky. Here’s a simple description of what they are:

  1. The northern lights are colorful lights that dance across the night sky in the far northern regions of the Earth.
  2. They appear as shimmering curtains or waves of light that can be green, pink, purple, or even red in color.
  3. These lights are created when charged particles from the sun collide with atoms in the Earth’s atmosphere.
  4. The Earth’s magnetic field guides these charged particles towards the polar regions.
  5. When the charged particles enter the atmosphere, they interact with gases like oxygen and nitrogen, causing them to emit light.
  6. The colors of the northern lights depend on the type of gas and the altitude at which the collisions occur.
  7. The lights often appear in a swirling or rippling motion, giving the impression of a celestial light show.
  8. The best time to see the northern lights is during the winter months when the nights are long and dark.
  9. Ideal viewing locations are usually in high-latitude areas such as Alaska, Canada, Scandinavia, and Iceland.
  10. The northern lights have captivated people for centuries, inspiring awe and wonder as they illuminate the night sky with their ethereal beauty.

Best Time to See the Northern Lights

In Rovaniemi, a city in Finnish Lapland known for its proximity to the Arctic Circle, the best time to see the northern lights is during the winter months. Here’s a simple guide to the ideal time for viewing the aurora borealis in Rovaniemi:

  1. The prime time to see the northern lights in Rovaniemi is from late September to early April.
  2. During this time, the nights are long, and the skies are generally darker, providing better visibility for the northern lights.
  3. The period around the autumn equinox (late September) and spring equinox (late March) usually brings increased auroral activity.
  4. However, the months of December and January are particularly popular due to their extended periods of darkness.
  5. It’s important to note that the weather conditions play a significant role in visibility. Clear nights with minimal cloud cover offer the best chances to witness the lights.
  6. Moon phases can affect the visibility as well. A new moon or a moonless night provides a darker sky, enhancing the northern lights’ visibility.
  7. It is advisable to check the local weather forecast and aurora forecasts for geomagnetic activity levels to plan your aurora viewing.
  8. Rovaniemi’s location near the Arctic Circle provides a higher probability of witnessing the northern lights compared to more southern regions.
  9. Away from city lights, such as in areas with less light pollution, the chances of seeing the aurora borealis increase.
  10. Remember that the northern lights are a natural phenomenon, and their appearance can never be guaranteed. Patience, persistence, and favorable conditions increase your likelihood of witnessing this breathtaking spectacle.

What camera equipment to bring

For beginners looking to capture the northern lights, here’s a simple guide on the camera equipment you should consider bringing:

  1. Camera: Bring a digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) or mirrorless camera that allows manual control over settings. These types of cameras provide better control and image quality.
  2. Lens: Use a wide-angle lens with a low aperture (f/2.8 or lower) to capture a larger portion of the sky and allow more light into the camera.
  3. Tripod: A sturdy tripod is essential for long-exposure photography. It helps stabilize the camera and prevents blurry images caused by hand movements.
  4. Extra Batteries: Cold temperatures can drain camera batteries faster. Carry extra fully charged batteries to ensure you don’t miss out on capturing the lights.
  5. Memory Cards: Bring multiple high-capacity memory cards to store all your images. It’s better to have more storage than to run out during the shoot.
  6. Remote Shutter Release: A remote shutter release or an intervalometer allows you to trigger the camera without touching it, minimizing the risk of camera shake.
  7. Lens Cloth: Cold weather can cause condensation on your lens. Keep a lens cloth handy to clean it and ensure your shots remain clear and sharp.
  8. Headlamp or Flashlight: Since you’ll be shooting in the dark, a headlamp or flashlight will help you navigate the equipment and adjust settings without hassle.
  9. Camera Bag: Invest in a durable camera bag that can protect your gear from the elements, especially if you’re shooting in cold and snowy conditions.
  10. Remember to familiarize yourself with your camera’s manual settings and experiment with different exposure times and ISO settings to capture the best possible images of the northern lights.
