NASA Predicts Best Northern Lights In A Decade

Quincy, MA, September 12, 2013 – One of the most awe-inspiring natural wonders in Iceland from September through April is the Aurora Borealis, also known as the northern lights.  Every year during the winter months, the nights are dark and the sky often clear making for ideal viewing conditions.

So what makes this winter so special?  NASA has predicted that the northern lights will be at their most intense in over a decade.  According to the NASA website “Forecasters say Solar Max is due in the year 2013.  When it arrives, the peak of the 11-year sunspot cycle will bring more solar flares, more coronal mass ejections, more geomagnetic storms and more auroras than we have experienced in quite some time”. 

Icelandair makes it easy to plan your trip to experience the wonders of northern nights, starting as low as $689* per person. Icelandair’s Blue Lagoon & Northern Lights package will fulfill your body, mind and soul with Iceland’s ultimate offerings, including round- trip airfare on Icelandair, three nights hotel, and an exclusive boat trip to search for the northern lights.
