Another lovely VLF-quiet location... (it is necessary to find places free from AC-power-lines to hear the best natural-radio ELF-VLF signals - "The Music of the Magnetosphere."

Aurora in Alberta Canada 13 Aug 2000

Aurora in Alberta Canada 13 Aug 2000 at about 0200 MDT - Energy and particles from the Sun impacts Earth's Magnetosphere and generates lovely Aurora and Natural-Radio Signals - the radio sounds of "Space Weather."


Manitoba Aurora photo

Photo of gorgeous aurora over northern Manitoba, Canada, taken during Manitoba Solar-Minimum VLF Expedition, way back on 22 August 1996. Central/Northern Manitoba, Canada is the truly best place (in late summer when it is still mild weather) to see gorgeous aurora. If you wish to witness this incredible spectacle for yourself, you don't have to wait until the cold of winter to go northward to see gorgeous aurora if you head for central/northern Manitoba or Saskatchewan, Canada in late August or early September, and the VLF signals will generally be very good (even in solar-minimum periods)! The True North Strong and Free. I love the Boreal Forest region!

I consider it incredible to have visited Russia (2009) and China (2013) - amazing nations too. I have a global-outlook and love travel to learn as much about Earth and all of as is possible (I've been DXing the radio bands since the early 1970s). I've met good, deep people in every nation I have visited. One Earth...
