Best Time for Northern Lights

Jump to last reply

DH has on his bucket list the opportunity to see Northern Lights. I found a really nice package to Alaska and now we are just trying to figure out when to go. The best time for our schedule would be November, but somewhere I read that November can be a bit more cloudy. According to one site, the best time to go is the new moon in March, but we will be in Florida. We could go in April, but I was concerned that it would be getting a bit too late in the year. Any ideas from people who live there and know what the typical weather is for November versus April? I know there are no guarantees, but want the best opportunity for nighttime viewing so that means clear skies and all.
Thanks!
