The park encompasses more than 6 million acres in a complete sub-arctic ecosystem. It features North America’s highest mountain, 20,320-foot tall Mount McKinley. The aurora is a beautiful, phenomenon, occurring year-round. Only in the fall, winter and early spring, is there enough darkness to allow us to see the northern lights when they occur. The aurora borealis occurs when a coronal mass ejection, a massive burst of solar wind and magnetic fields, interacts with elements in the earth’s atmosphere. Coronal mass ejections are often associated with other forms of solar activity, most notably solar flares.

Times Square is located in the heart of the New York City. It was named after the Times Building, now One Times Square. The name is now used for the area between 40th and 53rd street and 6th and 9th avenue. Times Square is a popular New York destination all year long, but New Years Eve is the single biggest night to hit these streets.
