Some nights when we look up at the moon, it is full and bright; sometimes it is just a sliver of silvery light.

2016 Moon Phases Calendar

These changes in appearance are the phases of the moon. As the moon orbits Earth, it cycles through eight distinct phases. The four primary phases occur about a week apart. Here are the dates of the moon's phases for 2016 (and for December 2015), according to NASA. Times and dates are in Universal Time. The moon, like Earth, is a sphere, and it is always half-illuminated by the sun. New moon: The moon is between Earth and the sun, and the side of the moon facing toward us receives no direct sunlight; it is lit only by dim sunlight reflected from Earth. Waxing crescent: As the moon moves around Earth, the side we can see gradually becomes more illuminated by direct sunlight. A Traveler’s Guide to the Aurora Borealis.

A Traveler’s Guide to the Aurora Borealis

We have chosen this level of auroral activity, index Kp=2, because it will occur often enough that you will probably see the aurora in this region if you travel there and stay for three days or a week, and if the skies are clear.

If the activity is higher than 2, you will still observe the stronger motions, color changes, etc., that are seen farther equatorward. There are some steps you can take to begin the process of acquainting yourself with auroral activity. Geophysical Institute. Northern Lights Photos: The Amazing Auroras of 2016.
