const visibleLightWaves = () => {
 let lightWaves = 'Moonlight'
 console.log(lightWaves);
  let region = 'The Artic' 
   if region === 'The Artic' 
  
};
visibleLightWaves()

JS syntax requires parens around the conditional, and a block…

if (region === 'The Arctic') {

}

Thank you! also realised i had a spelling error!

Be sure to write the code in the order prescribed.

let lightwaves = ...
let region = ...
if (region ... ) {
    let ...
    console.log(lightwaves);
}
console.log(lightwaves);
