Reader's Take: "Northern lights again -- because I do not want to wait a decade for the strongest flares." -- Christina Ernst

IT.com Recommendation: The northern lights can be viewed from numerous vantage points in Scandinavia, Iceland, Greenland, Russia, Alaska and Canada. A few of our favorites: the fjords of Tromso, Norway (pictured), and Jokulsarlon Lagoon in Iceland -- seeing the lights reflected in the water below adds another element to an already spectacular show.
