Nort­hern light acti­vi­ty maxi­mum in 2013/14

Nort­hern light acti­vi­ty is con­nec­ted to the acti­vi­ty of the sun, which con­stant­ly sends char­ged par­ti­cles into space that react with the Earth’s hig­her atmo­s­phe­re and magne­tic field. The sun’s acti­vi­ty varies slight­ly with an 11 year perio­di­ci­ty. The next maxi­mum is expec­ted near 2013/14. Nort­hern light fans should be on watch that win­ter.
