Northern Lights Dazzle New York Sky & You Have Another Chance to See Them
The Aurora Borealis are lighting up the night sky and New York is among one of the best places to see them. Don't worry. If you missed the Northern Lights, you may still have another chance.
Talk about a colorful way to end the work week. Northern Lights could be seen from Washington DC to New York and across parts of the midwest Thursday night (March 23, 2023) into Friday morning.
From the Air
Annie Scott Riley may have captured one of the best pictures of the Nothern Lights from the window of her airplane as she flew home from JFK in New York.
James Montanus of Montanus Photography captured the lights from the lake shore in Rochester, New York.
Mother Nature isn't done just yet. There's another chance to see the Northern Lights tonight (March 24, 2023) into early Saturday morning across Upstate New York. This time of year is actually perfect for Aurora Borealis viewing, according to NOAA.
"The best seasons for aurora watching are around the spring and fall equinoxes."
Best Viewing Time
The best time to view the lights is normally within an hour or two of midnight. So, sometime between 10 PM and 2 AM. And you'll need to find a dark place, away from the city lights, to see the prism of floating color.
