@BudgetGlobetrotter; Who can tell March is the best month for the Northern lights..? I thought it depends what happen on the sun, and its active 24/7 365 out there..;)

This winter, January has been a quiet month, but September was amazing great, with 30 of 30 days with clear sky, and many nights with great Aurora show.

What's happen in March, nobody can tell, and please don't trust to much on a Aurora forecast, and just forget all talks about Kp-index... its just a indicator of what will... can happen...

Patience is your most important tool, and you'll increase your chances for a good one, as longer you stay; We recommend a stay on five nights!

Please check out my Aurora blog for this season first four months, September to December, for getting a picture of how it can look like, from night to night, …blogspot.no/2018/01/overview-report-autumn-…

This site with Aurora forecast indicates an average activity for each month and states that the activity in March is stronger. But yes, it can be wrong.
