Quotes

...tuteInstitute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands (IAC) Miquel Serra-Ricart, you will see the Northern Lights from southern Greenland and Iceland. "The Sun continues to show signs of high activity since reaching its peak earlier this year. If we observe auroral must seize the coming months as there is evidence to make us think that the next solar maximum, in eleven years will be less intense than the actual" said Serra-Ricart
...ideal conditions for the Northern Lights," said Jonny Cooper , founder and director of specialist Northern Lights company Off the Map Travel . "You always have the chance of seeing an aurora. You need clear, dark skies and to travel to a spot under the auroral oval such as Northern Sweden . The thing that excites aurora hunters this season is that this active period of solar activity is giving us an even better chance to see brighter more vivid displays."
"The ionosphere can conduct electricity, which makes it basically transparent to the magnetic fieldfield lines. The lines go right through down to the planet's surface and some ways into the planet" said Glyn Collinson, a space scientist at the Goddard Space Flight Centre in Greenbelt, Maryland
"This is the first event in a number of months. It has been very quiet throughout the summer" he said
