Postcard: Northern Lights from Rovaneimi, Finland

Scan_20170407 (5)

A phenomenon known as Aurora Borealis in the magnetic poles of Northern Hemisphere are the Nature’s own theater and lights show. Best viewed from Norway, Finland, and Iceland, it should be, if it already isn’t on everyone’s list of things to see.

I traveled to Rovaniemi in the Lapland (Finland), to see the Northern Lights. While the best time to visit is during the peak nights of winter- the colder it is – the more likely you are to see the show, I visited in September. It was very cold and my fingers were very crossed. For a little time- I think around 40 minutes or so, I saw it- the sky was lit up green. It was really a breath-taking experience and I was too engrossed in staring at the sky to take pictures- so I took some off my uncle who viewed the entire episode mostly from his camera lens.

Hopefully, I’ll travel again soon- this time to Norway, to catch the best in the house for nature’s best show.
