The Northern Lights

Otherwise known as the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights have been been dancing across the world's sky for centuries, and while they may not be unique to Canada, we proudly have the Northern Lights Centre in the Yukon territory. I was fortunate enough to see it with my own eyes on a summer road trip last year. To say it was the highlight of the highway drive between Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, would be an understatement. That statement doesn't do enough to explain how boring that drive is, or how impressive the lights were to watch.

If you've had the privilege of watching this scientific light show you know just how lucky you were. If you haven't, come on up to some the remote parts of Canada, get a double-double at the Tim Horton's, put your phone away, and just watch the show, because it's a different one every time.
