Since 2012 astronomer and U-M alumnus José Francisco Salgado has been photographing the Northern Lights from Canada, Alaska, and Iceland, as part of his work of communicating science through the arts. So far, his Northern Lights films set to music have been presented with orchestras in 13 cities in four countries and have reached a combined audience of 130,000 people. In this lecture, Dr. Salgado will speak about the physical processes behind the mesmerizing auroras and the experience of photographing them from subarctic Canada twice a year.
