Extreme Auroras is a visual feast. Award winning photographer Ole Salomonsen lives in the Arctic. Join him as he journeys through northern Norway, Finland, and Sweden in pursuit of his passion to film nature’s wildest and most spectacular light show: the aurora borealis, or northern lights.
Filmed with fisheye lenses that capture the whole sky and then projected in the fulldome theater, you will feel that you are right there in the arctic wilderness, witnessing this awe-inspiring natural phenomenon.
Solar activity reaches a maximum every 11 years, and the current cycle should peak in 2013.
For the first time, state of-the-art camera technology has allowed the most amazing auroras to be filmed at close to their real speed. Experience a sense of wonder in your local fulldome theater.
The film also features an animation to show how the aurora is created, and how it results from explosive activity on the surface of our Sun. Man’s quest to understand the aurora, from Biblical times to the Space Age, is described. Extreme Auroras is a light show like you have never seen before. Don’t miss it!
