Stay tuned to churchillpolarbears.org for more news from the far north and the Hudson Bay village of Churchill, MB. Should be another amazing month of northern lights adventures.
“Guiding natural habitat aurora trips- I’ve seen some lights in my days, but last night in Churchill was top 5 in my life. they were moving so fast 5 second exposure still blurred them. at times we thought they were gonna swipe down and zap …us. yeah, you could have read a book by them. we probably could have heard them, but all you could hear was people moaning in awe. i got some time-lapse material ill put together later, as stills just don’t do this justice. even that wont, you just had to be there! what a way to start the first night of a trip, and it was only -17 f, no wind, and we only had to stay out till 2 am!!!! doesn’t get any better than that!”Brad Josephs
