If you can’t see the aurora in person, then a webcam view might be the next best thing. Here you’ll find a list of all the webcams that are set up to capture the aurora, sorted by north to south. The map below shows exactly where they’re located.

Keep in mind that most webcams will shut off in the summer when there is too much daylight.
