Aurora Borealis: Northern Lights Released for MSFS

South Oak Co, the developer behind FS Birds and ‘Traffic in Sight’ has released a new add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator which adds the phenomenon known as aurora borealis.

Also known as The Northern Lights, this sky phenomenon is typically seen during between September and April in the Northern Hemisphere. The vibrant and colourful light arrangement bounces around the dark sky, thanks to the movement of solar winds.

The developer has implemented this environmental effect into Microsoft Flight Simulator thanks to “advanced algorithms” and this then “accurately recreates the mesmerizing light patterns.” Once installed, you will able to find aurora borealis in various geographical regions from 60°N to 83°N latitude. During the winter months, this changes to lower latitudes.

South Oak Co says that the add-on is also performance friendly, meaning there will be no impact on your frame rate or loading times.

You can pick up South Oak Co’s Aurora Borealis: Northern Lights Released for MSFS from SIMMARKET for €7.99 (excluding taxes). If you own any number of previous releases from the developer via SIMMARKET, you an save yourself a Euro.
