Northern Lights at Nááts’įhch’oh Tué (Moose Ponds) – mid September

You probably won’t use your headlamp, but you’ll want a mask for sleeping under the midnight sun. Especially in late June and early July, the sun seems to shine all night long.

If you really want to see the northern lights, or aurora borealis, plan your trip for mid to late August or early September when the skies are darker.
