The Northern Lights in Science & Legend

Join Canadian Expedition Leader Eddy Savage, an expert on all things Arctic, for a fascinating presentation on one of nature’s most mystical wonders: the northern lights. Also called the aurora borealis—which in Latin means “north wind of the dawn”—these dancing curtains of light in the far-north night sky have intrigued humankind for millennia. And while our scientific understanding of the aurora has been honed in recent decades, the lights have long provoked wonder and inspired stories about their origin and meaning. Eddy presents the science behind the lights in layman’s terms, along with an overview of the myths and legends surrounding this most wondrous of natural phenomena. You’ll also learn why Churchill, Manitoba—where Nat Hab runs winter northern lights trips— is one of the best places on Earth to view it.
