How to see "Northern Lights" in FS2002?

Recommended Posts

6 months ago, I was simming around Greenland and Iceland and I saw fantastic Northern Lights in the a/c I was flying. I saw them repeatedly over a period of hours. I cannot seem to replicate the conditions to see them again!I am now over Sweden on Xmas Day at 1 am in the AFG YS-11 at FL120, and the sky is black, black, black. Where is the Aurora Borealis?!If anybody knows how to find these magical lights, can you please post?Thanks!JS

Holy S#$%!!!I just saw them!I literally had clicked on POST for the question above and returned to FS2002 as I noticed city lights below and then BLAM!, Northern Lights overhead. Deep fluorescing colors! It's a trip!Man, I cannot BELIEVE this! I'd been flying for ages (an hour or more) looking for them, and was getting desperate!How'd this happen?!?!?!?!?@#$??JS

These are a strange one, when I first bought FS2002 I flyed around in the more northern latitudes and saw them, but they didn't always display in the Virtual Cockpit view, usually only in the 2D. But now I can see them in 2D, VC and outside 3D view. Not sure what I changed but they do look good. Just make sure you have no clouds, I have even seen them whilst flying my Lago Tornado around the scottish highlands. Wish they had some more colours though.

In this a/c and panel (YS-11 by AFG), I had to be in SPOT view to see them. In 2D and VC, no lights at all!Just glad to see them at all !JS
