Hunting for the Southern Lights
They are unpredictable, but there are ways to track them. The solar climate is what causes them, and so a little knowledge about that is all you need. Lachlan Manley recommends following space weather on SpaceWeatherLive or the NASA website, “although easiest of all is to follow Facebook groups of aurora fans, on Aurora Hunters Victoria or Tasmania”.
The further south you are the better. And there’s no place further south than Antarctica. The auroras are caused by solar particles hitting the earths’s magnetic field, and at the poles there is more magnetic activity. Cruises to Antarctica operate out of Ushuaia in Argentina.
