The Finnish Tourist Board says videos of Finland's northern lights (aurora borealis) have been watched over a million times on YouTube over the past two weeks.

The elusive, beautiful northern lights are most likely spotted in the fells of Finland's Far North. The Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory, in Finland's Far North, studies northern lights, forecasting where the colourful streaks are best seen.
