As the coronavirus pandemic brings about global lockdown and people are being forced to stay within the confines of their homes, various livestreams are surging in popularity. 

There are various museums offering virtual tours and walks through magnificent national parks guided by experienced rangers. The latest livestream allows you to stream the Northern Lights straight from a webcam located in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada.

‘Welcome to nature’s most amazing light show,’ the feed’s description says. ‘Located at the Churchill Northern Studies Center in Churchill, Manitoba, this live cam is located directly underneath the aurora oval — one of the best places on earth to watch the aurora borealis, the spectacular atmospheric phenomenon better known as the Northern Lights.’



The page on which the feed is located also lets people know that late winter and early spring (the Northern Hemisphere is experiencing spring right now) are among the best times to view the aurora.
