AuroraMAX – The Northern Lights Live – Standard


Auroramax, Yellowknife, Canada

Northern lights despite bright nights: AuroraMAX features a guest camera for the summer season

Nights are short and bright in Canada's north in the summer, which makes it difficult to see auroras. Our Yellowknife livecam is taking a short break for the summer, and will resume once darkness returns in August.

In the meantime, we'll be hosting live nightly broadcasts from the University of Calgary's aurora camera in Gillam, Manitoba, until nights become too bright to see the aurora.

This summer, as you head out to the cottage or set out on camping trips, follow us on Twitter and Facebook for alerts to see the northern lights for yourself! Aurora predictions are made 24 to 48 hours in advance depending on solar conditions.

Happy aurora hunting!
