Norway Awaits Incredible Northern Lights

Scientists at NASA have predicted peak of maximum solar activity in December leading to the appearance of the Northern Lights which will delight visitors to the country with bright flashes of color.

Experts point out that since 2007 there is a marked increase in the number of tourists in Norway who want to see the unusual sight effect

It is generally accepted that fluctuations in solar activity are like a pendulum. However, the solar cycle is not ideal: the cycle time could be 10 to 13 years, with some peaks being very strong, while others on the contrary are quite weak. Dean Pesnell, a solar physicist from the Solar Dynamics Observatory, Goddard (NASA), said that at the end of this year there will be a peak of solar activity.

In this case, no one knows for sure how events will unfold. However, most experts agree that the end of 2013 could be much more active than its beginning.

Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude regions, caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere.
