Hey Mark, the aurora borealis lightshow is technically viewable year-round, though obviously seasonal conditions determine how much you can actually see. You can still see the northern lights in summer, although with the very short, even non-existent, nights, your chances are much slimmer. The changeable weather of autumn and spring, including more broody, overcast skies, can also mean your chances are reduced. According to the website of Aurora Village, one of several dedicated viewing sites in the area, the best viewing windows in Yellowknife are "mid-August to the end of September and from mid-November to mid-April." Hope this helps! Here is a link to more info from Aurora Village:
