Can't travel? Stream the Northern Lights live from your home

You can do almost anything virtually these days, including travel. Here's a PSA that and Polar Bears International are live-streaming the Northern Lights right from your couch. Hey, at least you can take a break from binge-watching Tiger King or Crash Landing on You.

The live cam is planted directly underneath the aurora oval in Churchill, Manitoba, one of the best places on earth to watch the aurora borealis in its full glory. 

While it's not as satisfying as seeing the magical phenomenon first hand, at least this gives you some travel inspiration for your next trip – whether it's Iceland, Canada, Sweden, Greenland or New Zealand. And while you're at it, you can also virtually explore Sydney, marvel at Yosemite Falls, or get lost in the controlled chaos of the Shibuya Crossing. And if you're looking for somewhere closer to home, bring the wildlife of Sungei Buloh into your homes through its animal webcams.
