Northern Lights Streaming Live

Streaming from Churchill, Manitoba, this site allows you to see one of nature’s most stunning atmospheric phenomena. Although the northern lights occur year-round, late winter and early spring are the best seasons to see the lights. Try to tune in close to the darkest hours of the night, which are generally from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. EDT, for the best sights!
