the canadian space agency is getting ready for the year 2012 - it's a year with "maximum solar activity" and occurs every 11 years .
in co-operation with others , the canadian space agency will be broadcasting "live" the specteclular "aurora borealis" which is at its peak in years of maximum solar activities .



Ever wanted to see the northern lights, without having to travel north? A camera being set up in Yellowknife will allow people around the world to catch the phenomenon unfold online.

The Canadian Space Agency is teaming up with partners in Yellowknife and Calgary to set up a camera that will capture images of the aurora borealis and put those images on a website.

The space agency is working with the City of Yellowknife, Astronomy North and the University of Calgary on the five-year AuroraMax project.

"It shares our sky with people who may have never known our sky was this spectacular," James Pugsley, president of Astronomy North, told reporters in the N.W.T. capital Wednesday.

"Part of the outreach will be saying to Canada and Canadians and people around the world is that this is what we see when we go outside at night."
