More Aurora





It was clear and relatively calm a while ago on a moonless night, so I was able to get these aurora shots. The aurora in Cambridge Bay seems to form mainly as highly active curtains that tend to fold in on themselves. They can exhibit hints of red but, of course, are mainly green. They don’t last long and form generally in the NW quadrant of the sky – in the direction of the magnetic pole – which at one point not too long ago was east of here, on King William Island, and probably transited Victoria Island on its way out of Canadian territory.

Hi your pictures of the aurora over your hamlet are excellent. I am always looking at your new news and new pictures, your world is so different to mine in Andalucia that I have a quetion. Your hamlet is quite small how many inhabitants are living there and what kind of entertainment you have in a lonely place like this. I know you like walking on the ice and doing gorgeous pictures.

Some fantastic photography. I wish mine turned out half as good as yours.

Hi, what happens with your no new pictures. I am very often looking at your pictures but since January nothing new is coming? How is your springtime in Victoria Island? Karin

Hey Eric,
I really enjoyed browsing your site. Great pictures of the aurora! Keep the pictures coming. I can hardly imagine life in those freezing temps compared to here in Germany. It would be a great way to flash-chill an Oktoberfest beer. Some Summer shots would be interesting too.

greetings,
Eric S.
