Northern Lights Time-lapse – Churchill

This time-lapse is from Natural Habitat Adventures guide Brad Josephs from this northern lights season in Churchill! Here is his synopsis of the clip and you can also peruse his blog site; Bears & Beyond to read about all Brad’s excursions in the wild.

“I finished my season guiding aurora borealis expeditions for Natural Habitat Adventures a few weeks ago. The weather was thrillingly brutal, with one of the longest cold snaps in recent history, with wind chills as low as -61 Fahrenheit! I did get good aurora shows on all three of my trips. The following is a time-lapse sequence from one of the best nights of the season.”

“I will admit that this isn’t a great quality time-lapse. I manually took continuous images during a few of the more active periods of the night. I should have kept the camera in the same place the entire night to achieve a smoother, more complete sequence. To create this I simply bulk processed a few series of images in lightroom, and imported the JPEGS into iMovie, saved the file as a 9-minute clip, then started a new project, imported the clip, compressed the time, and saved it as a new video.”

Churchill and the Hudson Bay region is experiencing some good ole northern Arctic cold these days. However, the aurora borealis and even brighter than ever due to high auroral sun spot activity. The Aurora Domes and the Aurora Pod with their comfortable warm controlled climate are crucial to the northern lights viewing experience for Natural Habitat Adventures travelers these days!

Igloo Building in Churchill

Natural Habitat Adventures guide Brad Josephs and his group of avid and hearty travelers in Churchill for northern lights had time to learn the art of igloo building in frigid minus 50 C Arctic temperatures. Despite the piercing cold, everyone enjoyed the experience and immersed themselves in an authentic Arctic situation and survivalist technique utilized by hunters and travelers out on the tundra and ice of the far north. This system has saved lives every year in the extreme weather of the Arctic. Hopefully, we will bring you some tantalizing northern lights from this adventure in the next couple of days. Churchill’s aurora borealis season is heating up even during this incredibly cold stretch!
