Have you been dreaming of experiencing live polar lights (aurora borealis), a unique nature phenomenon which exists due to the influence of solar particles on the atmosphere around our planet? It is unimaginably beautiful and will strongly affect any spectator’s emotions. Murmansk oblast on the Kola peninsula is the best location for watching this nature phenomenon. When the skies are not clouded at night, one can enjoy the aurora borealis from September to mid April. Outside of this period it will not be noticeable on the sky because of the onset of polar day, which is one other remarkable nature phenomenon in the North: in the summer the sun does not go below the horizon, so even at night there is a lot of light.
