Immerse yourself in the beauty of breathtaking subarctic skies. Located directly beneath the auroral oval, Churchill, Manitoba is the best place on Earth to view the aurora borealis – the spectacular atmospheric phenomenon better known as the Northern Lights.  For over 240 years, astronomers and physicists have journeyed to Churchill to probe the upper atmosphere with cameras, balloons, and even rockets.  You can marvel at the aurora from the comfort of the CNSC’s heated viewing dome by night and explore the Churchill area by day.  Local tours, cultural presentations and dog sledding offer a taste of life in the Subarctic.  The Churchill Northern Studies Centre sits next to the historic Rocket Range, offering an iconic backdrop for aurora photography.
