Jasper Lake - Northern Lights Canada

If you drive out of Jasper to the East you will pass a damn that separates Talbot Lake and Jasper Lake. Park your car on one of the roadside turnouts and find Jasper Lake to the left. This Lake is formed by the Athabasca River and has usually very low water levels, so that exploring the area is easy. To be safe bring rubber boots. This spot might be cool during the day as well, but I like it better at night, when the aurora borealis dances over the lake (make sure the aurora is visible that night, check for cloud cover and auroral activity, www.spaceweatherlive.com). On the shores of the lake you will find rocks and drift wood to implement into your composition.
Aurora will be visible here with an observed KP-index of ca. 4-5. (the following data should be shown on spaceweatherlive. Windspeed >450, Density ca. 5-10, Bz <-5, Bt >5)
The aurora will be visible at any spot in Jasper with a good open view to the north.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.
