Photo: Heavy aurora activity lights up skies in Kugluktuk

By NUNATSIAQ NEWS

The spring equinox tends to bring more intense solar activity because of the way the earth's axis is pointing in relation to the sun, according to media reports out of Edmonton. That, coupled with alignments of the sun's and Earth's magnetic fields, combined last week to offer northerners amazing views of the northern lights. These aurora were captured over Kugluktuk on March 18. (PHOTO BY JESSE AJAYI)
