My husband and I are going to Fort McMurray in a few days hoping to catch the Northern Lights. We will be staying at the Sawridge Inn.
What are the best spots around there (walking distance from the hotel, if possible). I heard that some people go somewhere around the airport to see the Lights when the forecast is good. Would that be a good option? If yes, where exaclty?
Another, more general question: Is there a specific direction/part of the sky that we should focus on when looking up for the Northern Lights?
