Chasing the Northern Lights


An aurora selfie taken during the display on April 16-17, 2021, with the Sony a7III and 15mm Laowa lens.

Alan will provide advice on when and where to see the sky sight that is on the “bucket list” for many people, the Northern Lights. He’ll include tips and techniques for capturing the aurora in stills, time-lapses and real-time movies. He’ll illustrate the talk with images taken in Yellowknife and Churchill in northern Canada, and in Norway, as well as from his home in Alberta, Canada.


Alan is co-author of the popular guidebook for amateur astronomers, The Backyard Astronomer’s Guide, just out in a greatly revised and thoroughly updated fourth edition, and is author of the eBook, How to Photograph and Process Nightscapes and Time-Lapses. Alan lives in Alberta, Canada, where the Northern Lights often appear in his skies, but he also pursues the Lights to even more northern latitudes. Asteroid 78434 is named for him.
