Q&A: Aurora Borealis : Can I see it while on an Alaska Cruise?

Question by ckowyong: Aurora Borealis : Can I see it while on an Alaska Cruise?
Can I see it while on an Alaska Cruise in September? Or is it seen mostly in-land?

Best answer:

Answer by Mr. Moderatelyconservative
Alaskan cruise, not Alaska cruise. And of course it will depend on the time of year. Research the northern lights and educate yourself and you will have a better idea.

    You can and probably will see the Aurora Borealis while on your cruise. Some of the most vivid colors in the universe can be seen in Alaska. I know you will truly enjoy it. October is one of the best times, too!!

    u should still be able to c it on the cruise as its an effect on the ozone layer with any luck it should be better bcoz there wont be any light interference from street lights etc.

    I’ve seen Aurora in every month of the year in SE Alaska. Look North, after midnight on a clear night. Maybe you’ll see it maybe you wont. Look for the aurora forecast here:
