Northern Lights Aurora Borealis Viewing Canada The lights have been around since the earth formed its atmosphere and the times
of dinosaurs and early man. But they are only viewable beneath the Auroral Oval, a continuous oval-zone of energy-charged particles that encircle the magnetic North Pole.
The Aurora borealis display is at its very best and most intense, in the Northwest Territories, where it sits directly beneath this amazing Auroral Oval. Near Yellowknife NWT, it
boasts over 240 potential Aurora-viewing days, when the solar winds are at their most active and the clear, dark nights of the subarctic make the very best backdrop for these
ghostly shows of dancing light. We offer two locations to view the aurora borealis in the Northwest Territories. View this
spectacular light show from a lodge or at a special viewing location outside the city limits of Yellowknife. Combine your stay with classic Canadian winter activities...read more
What is the Aurora? The sun gives

kilometres per second. A cloud of such particles is called a plasma. The stream of plasma coming from
the sun is known as the solar wind. As the solar wind interacts with the edge of the earth's magnetic

Buffalo National Park is Canada's largest national park and one of the largest in the world. It was established in
