12 For 2012: Fairbanks, Alaska

February 28, 2012 by staff 

12 For 2012: Fairbanks, Alaska, NASA predicts that 2012 will feature the brightest northern-lights displays in 50 years. The “solar maximum” is the reason, a period when the magnetic field at the sun’s equator rotates slightly faster than at the solar poles.

Where will be the best place to view this amped-up aurora borealis? That’s up for debate, but many choose the area around Fairbanks, as it gets spectacular lights even during a normal year.

In fact, it’s deluged with Japanese honeymooners in winter who believe that a child conceived under the aurora will have an auspicious future.
