If you have kept track of any of our previous blogs, you will probably be aware that here at The Aurora Zone we love autumn! Despite your reservations, there is a very good reason for the fact we regularly try to convince anyone that will listen that autumn is an excellent time to visit the Arctic Circle – namely the Northern Lights viewing potential!

Now, there is some excellent scientific research and findings by some of the world’s best Solar Physicists as to exactly why autumn is such a good time for Aurora hunting (click here to read more about this). With the main factor being increased geomagnetic activity around the weeks of the autumn equinox. However, as the saying goes: ‘A picture paints a thousand words’, so rather than going into longwinded and potentially confusing detail about the science, we thought we would simply show you the evidence of yet another successful autumn! So, sit back, relax and take a look at some of our favourite Northern Lights photos from our friends in the Arctic so far:
