Solar Max: Northern lights at their peak
The Solar Maximum (Solar Max) is when solar activity is at its peak.
Solar what now?
Solar Max means that the sun will be chucking a whole lot more solar energy at earth, and bouncing it off our upper atmosphere. Because of that, the northern lights will be bigger, brighter, and more frequent.
When is Solar max? Right now! But here’s the catch. Solar Max will only last for a short time, approximately a year or so. Once it’s over, it won’t return for over a decade.
Here for a good time, not a long time.
If you’ve been wanting to see the northern lights, there’s no better time than now. The Yukon has so many ways to experience the light show of a lifetime.
