With Churchill’s northern light season just about a month away, here’s a video clip from Natural Habitat Adventures guide Drew Hamilton in the great white north….soon to be the great “green” north! Of course, aurora borealis occurs throughout the year in the Arctic and sub – Arctic, however, January through March is the prime window for viewing, when skies are the clearest. The Hudson Bay on the Churchill shores freezes over and no moisture rises to form cloud cover or fog. This season is promising to be one of high-intensity auroral action as we are still in a cycle of heavy solar flare activity. We will be posting regularly with all the news and views from the heart of the northern lights action in Churchill!
After what seems like weeks of blizzard news from Churchill, the main focus of this time of year has returned with some exquisite and intriguing northern lights images from Natural Habitat Adventures guide Drew Hamilton. Drew and his travelers ventured out on the ice pack of Bird Cove just outside of town to the wreck of the MV Ithaca. This favorite pilgrimage destination allows for incredible photos that highlight the waves of aurora borealis over the frozen Hudson Bay. Enjoy these cool pics and look for more northern lights posts and less snow news! Enjoy.
An awesome northern lights video by Natural Habitat Adventures guide Drew Hamilton. The aurora borealis is really starting to consistently shine this season in Churchill. However a sever winter storm warning has been issued for the region over the next couple of days. Keep posted for more high “lights” from the north. Enjoy!
The highly anticipated northern lights season in Churchill is underway and off to a roaring start. Last night Natural Habitat Adventures guide Drew Hamilton and his group of travelers spent the evening out at Wapusk Adventures sled -dog yard with owner and musher Dave Daley. The area is set up nicely for an evening of aurora watching and photography.
Dave is an excellent educator on the history and care of the northern husky sled dogs. An evening with him conveying this and his love for his 40 plus dogs melded with the spectacular aurora borealis above is “enlightening”.to say the least.
These beautiful northern lights shots by Drew are just the start to what will hopefully eclipse the incredible season we had last year. Enjoy!
