In Awe of the Northern Lights


 Dr. José Francisco Salgado is an astronomer, experimental photographer, and public speaker who creates multimedia works that communicate science in engaging ways. In this talk, Dr. Salgado will speak about the science behind the auroras and how his science films are used to inspire and educate audiences. He will share with us his photography, real-time video of the auroras, excerpts from his films, and Wondrous Light, his latest aurora production shot in Yellowknife.
