Aurora Max

The Canadian Space Agency has an ongoing project recording the northern lights . It  is what you could call a 360 degree video cam of the sky over the north pole. You might like to visit after dark and see what is happening. Remember , you are looking right up from the top of the world.

There is also an extensive archive and photo gallery that only adds to the appreciation of one of nature's magnificent gifts.

Well I was gone for one day and what a pleasant surprise to see so many people have dropped by to take a peek here. Thank you Emma at Nature Centre Magazine blog for sharing this blog  with your friends/viewers. 

I hope everyone enjoyed the view from Aurora Max. One day I hope to get that far north to see it in real time. What I have seen in Edmonton , Alberta  ( the furthest north I've been during a light show) was most spectacular.  Apparently it is only a small taste of the far north. Lucky for all those countries facing north. 


  1. It must be nice to live where you can see the Northern Lights regularly. It has been a real joy looking through your site. It brings me so many memories. How To Make A Winter Bed is the Nature Site of the Week at Nature Center Magazine.

  2. What a nice find. You had a nice review at Nature Center Mag, congrats.

  3. I have never seen the northern lights in person but it is something I have seen before on television and read a lot is lovely to be able to watch them live so thank you for sharing this link.

  4. This sounds very interesting. Watching the night sky has been a recent favorite activity of mine.

  5. Thank you all for such interest in this indescribable wonder of the world. The next few nights will be particularly active so be sure to stop in for the light show at Aurora Max.
