The One Mesmerizing Place in Iowa to See the Northern Lights
Clear and dark skies are necessary if you want to experience the majestic Northern Lights here in Iowa. The Aurora doesn’t run on a schedule; seeing it is a matter of being in the right place, under the right conditions, at the right time. Since darkness is so important to seeing the Northern Lights, getting to a place with a flat surrounding landscape and very little ambient light from nearby towns is crucial.
To learn more about the ever-changing Northern Lights, you could use an online resource like Aurora Borealis Forecast. You can receive alerts that you set for your location, see a real time Aurora forecast map, and check the Earth light and moon light pollution levels to help predict ambient light levels.
