Hi everyone!! you know I am from Southamerica, right :)?
Well, I have a dream since I was a kid and saw the movie "Balto" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112453/ , I'd like to see the Northern Lights / Aurora Borealis. It is so beautiful and wonderful. To me would be like seing God painting watercolors n__n. But, I've been wondering "when"???
There is where you can help me :D, please.
I've heard/read somewhere this is the year of auroras??? is that right?? if so, which months would be the best to see them in Scandinavia??? Also, is there sometime when I can see them and weather is not that cold/freeze/killing? I mention this, because I know I can see Auroras in both poles, in fact Antarctica is closer to me, BUT!!! it's such a cold place that I'd go to die :(. I can't stand cold climate.... also, I've read that North Pole is warmer than South Pole... SO, I'd like go visit Scandinavia this year!!!!
Could you please give me some advice guys/gals?
I'll appreciate it :)

Blessings from Southamerica!

Hi dear Romita!

The best place to view the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) is Northern Scandinavia, i.e., Lapland of Norway, Sweden and Finland. The best time of the year would be in September - April, 11 pm - 2 am.

The average temperature in the north in September varies between 10 C (50 F) in the day to 2 C (35.6 F). Unfortunately there will not be any Northern Lights (not that I have heard of anyway) to see in June, but it would be a lot warmer :-) You're very welcome to Sweden Romita.

The 2 C (35.6 F) was the average night temperature in Northern Sweden.

Thanks a lot Hejsan! all the information you provided me is very useful :D. You are very welcome to Southamerica too! I live in the heart of S.A. Bolivia! here it is the biggest flat salt desert in the world, Uyuni :D! You can also see a variety of landscapes: from andean to tropical :)
