Best Time to See the Northern Lights in Alaska Alaska’s northern lights season is between mid – September and late April , peaking in March , though it’s a season defined more by its long, dark nights than by solar activity.
Barrow— Alaska’s northernmost village—lies far above the Arctic Circle. This is why it’s constantly exposed to the sun during some parts of the year, preventing it from experiencing night for more than two months.
Alaska runs a program called the Alaska Permanent Fund, which, per the state website, allots an equal amount of the state’s oil royalties to every resident through an annual dividend. In 2018, that dividend came out to $1,600 per person.
Alaska consolidated to two time zones – Alaska Time and Hawaii-Aleutian Time – in 1983 to put our state capitol, Juneau, on the same time zone as the more populated Anchorage and Fairbanks (and to make doing business with companies in the Lower 48 states a little easier).
PLEASE NOTE: Alaska may span multiple time zones. We are using the America/Anchorage time zone.
