Aurora Borealis: A Mystical Display of Color
Tue October 9, 2018 @ 1:00 pm EDT
Swirling northern lights that appear to drip from a dark sky have spawned millennia of stories across the Arctic. Each winter, the mythical lights dance over Churchill, Manitoba—one of world’s best places to see aurora borealis at their most vibrant. Join Nat Hab Expedition Leader Court Whelan to learn more about these colorful displays spawned by solar flare particles becoming trapped in Earth’s magnetic field. During our next webinar Court shares the science, then escorts you on a virtual journey into the experience of witnessing northern lights from our custom-built Aurora Pod®—an exclusive adventure on the tundra with 360-degree views of the night sky enjoyed in warmth and comfort as you watch through rooftop glass. Plus, Churchill offers your best possible chance to capture those magical northern lights photographs you’ve always wanted to brag about!
