Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) Over Fairbanks, Alaska

Vibrant Northern Lights displays illuminate the sky above the city of Fairbanks in Interior Alaska. As we are approaching the solar maximum, we should be able to see more Northern Lights with equal intensity. The solar cycle takes an average of around 11 years to go from one solar maximum to the next – varying between 9 to 14 years for any given solar cycle. The last Solar Maximum was in 2000. The next peak will occur in 2011 and 2012, so opportunities to see auroras outside their normal range should be excellent.
