Aurora borealis, no passport required!
Picture the Northern Lights, a shimmering fantasia of lights playing across the night’s sky. Now picture where this phenomenon is taking place. You’re probably imagining a Nordic landscape complete with fjords and reindeer. Or the sprawling expanse of the Arctic’s farthest reaches. But you don’t have to journey into the tundra or even practice your Norwegian in order to go see the aurora borealis. There are plenty of places within the United States where you can witness one of nature’s most awe-inspiring phenomenon.
