We have been treated to a few northern lights shows in Calgary this year and we got another amazing display last night.
It seems like we’ve been getting these shows once a month now but they never get old.

Before this year, you’d get some of these displays on the outskirts of the city or you’d have to travel a few minutes to get a glimpse. But now, the northern lights are becoming a part of the Calgary downtown skyline, making for some amazing shots.

If you are now hooked on seeing the northern lights, there are places to help make sure you never miss a show again. The Aurora Max Facebook page has alerts and updates, so you can enjoy the next time this natural wonder comes around.
And if you want to dig deeper into the aurora borealis, there are lots of resources from the Government of Canada that you can study.
