Weather photo of the week: northern lights in Crivitz

Beyond The Forecast

(WFRV) – A faint aurora was pictured during the late hours on March 2, 2021 in Crivitz. Although the northern lights were tough to see with the naked eye, with a higher resolution camera they became more visible.

The best way to see the northern lights typically means being away from any light pollution. This allows your eyes to adjust to the darkness.

According to the Space Weather Prediction Center, “Aurora Borealis are the result of electrons colliding with the upper reaches of Earth’s atmosphere.”
