Hunting Aurora Borealis

The Northern Lights adventure is out there, come and join!

Hunting for a solar storm

Lady Aurora dances her proton and electron dance over the northern hemisphere. You are in a nocturnal adventure out of the ordinary when Aurora Borealis changes the sky into a dynamic colour spectrum.

The Northern Lights have been moving across the arctic sky for endless times, been sung about in folklore and been told myths about. 

Would you like to join for an adventure with lady Aurora?
