"The VLF Story" by Stephen P. McGreevy - (about my VLF field-recording travels)
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."
A Summer 1996 photo of gorgeous aurora over northern Manitoba, Canada, taken during my Manitoba Solar-Minimum VLF Expedition way back on 22 August 1996. Central/Northern Manitoba, Canada an excellent region in North America (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/dark 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. I love the vast Boreal Forest region! - "The True North Strong and Free."
Furthermore, I cannot recommend highly enough to anyone whom wishes to see the aurora for yourself--from experience I can highly suggest (unfortunately Auroral displays and also natural-radio phenomena are in a very-steep decline now due to declining solar-activity, downward into an upcoming minimum in 2018, although some report signs of the new Cycle 25 with new Sunspots occurring at high solar latitude already) the Aurora best appears most frequently during the *equinoctal* periods around September and April (due to the alignment of Earth's magnetic-field and the IPF).
Thus, late August through mid-September will definitely present the warmest (short sleeves/pants weather!) Summer Prairie-Beauty Canadian weather! Do head for Canada's High Plains/Boreal Forest region in late Summer. To be deep into the optimal locations under the auroral-oval for the most superb Aurora enjoyment, journey up to Thompson, Manitoba or Hay River, NWT (as I did in June 1996). Find an electrically-quiet location and enjoy the ELF show, too! SpM.

(I enjoy doing professional-level audio-recording of musical-events and acoustic field-recordings - Luke and Sofia from England visited me at my home and then attended our HDMC in October 2013 - Sofia is pictured here - 2017 HDMC was the final event I partook in, as I am relocating out of California in early 2018.
This is my legacy-website and a gateway to all of my natural ELF-VLF radio field-recordings and other radio/DX-related recordings. (I am no longer in public-contact regarding natural radio for the time being - it is time for younger people to take the reins of this pursuit now).
