Watching Aurora is one of my targets in my must-do list. I don't think I can achieve it easily before I listen to a ITA radio programme :
They said there is high chance to watch northern light in Fairbanks, it happens 240days a year - a shocking news to me!!!!!!!!!!!!
Secondly, I found that a HK guy went to Alaska for watching aurora in a very low budget, around HK$11K for 15days. I can't believe this. Anyway I will target it below 25K for 10-12 days.
But I am struggling about the transportation, not sure if it is impossible that I don't have a driving license.
The hit period of northern light is from SEPT to MAR, and within these 3 years, and so I am considering to add it to my list.
2012 May: USA with family
2013 Mar: Morocco
2014 Sept: Alaska
2015 Dec: Italy/Germany
And there is a awesome video taking the Aurora in the Universe:
