Northern lights (Aurora borealis) are found in the Northern Hemisphere between September and April, and Southern Lights (Aurora australis) are treated in the Southern Hemisphere from March to September. The best times are two solstices: the times when the sun is perpendicular to the equator, around March 20 and September 20. You need to be in a dark place where small light pollution interferes with the film and the weather should cooperate. You have the best chance of clear skies over the Yukon and Northwest Territories in Canada and Lapland. The weather is forecast to be low in Iceland and Norway.
