I loved a summer visit to Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada where I met photographer and aurora hunter Sean Norman.
Of course, that was the time of Midnight Sun, but since about September, Sean, who also leads northern lights tours, has been sharing his amazing photos. This one was taken a few days ago during a major aurora event.
Yellowknife is located about 400 km south of the arctic circle on the shore of Great Slave Lake. The mostly flat landscape of tundra and ancient Canadian Shield granite, along with a dry climate, make the area a perfect — and popular — place for winter sky watchers.
Home to the cosiest Yellowknife aurora chasing tours focused on photography, and a little bit of astronomy.
