Did you know you can watch the Aurora Borealis from literally anywhere in the world?
Many have always dreamed of seeing the northern lights up close, but it certainly won’t be happening any time soon, thanks to a certain global pandemic. But, thanks to the internet, we’ve found a compromise…
You can stream the northern lights live to your bedroom (or kitchen, Seymour Skinner style) as if it were the latest thriller on Netflix. And—added bonus—you won’t need to fork out a mortgage to see them.
Every single evening, Polar Bear International and Explore streams the sky in all its glory. If you’ve picked a good night, you’ll catch nature’s stunning light show live from Churchill, Manitoba in Canada. The cam is located directly underneath the aurora oval, which is one of the best places in the world to admire the northern lights. And the very best part? You can do so without trudging through the arctic conditions and, instead, can camp out from your sofa with a nice warm brew.

You may get a decent view of the stars from your garden or out of the window at night. But, if you want a real show, tune into the Aurora Borealis and treat yourself to a cheap thrill. Late winter/early spring is the best time of year to catch the lights, so you should be pretty lucky around now.
