About the Author
Dan Bortolotti is a writer and editor whose work has appeared in many magazines, including Equinox, Canadian Geographic and OWL. He is the author of Exploring Saturn. Yuichi Takasaka is a photographer and videographer who emigrated from Japan more than 20 years ago and became captivated by the spectacular night sky of the Far North. Today, his all-season images of the aurora borealis are world-renowned.
The shimmering, swirling, ghostly glowing northern lights are pictured here in multi-faceted glory; ideal if you want to see the Aurora Borealis without braving sub-zero temperatures late at night. This gorgeously produced book offers photos of rare red aurora, Aurora Australis (in the south), views from space and more. Brief front pages to each chapter and short captions under the photos cover history, science and folklore associated with the aurora. And if you are inspired to go out and see the magic for yourself, the last page has advice for you.--Gail Marchessault"Winnipeg Free Press" (12/09/2011)
