This trip is scheduled to coincide with the new moon and at the peak time of year. This is also the time of year when Alaska has the least amount of clouds. We have been doing this trip for several years and never struck out.

We will be traveling to several different locations. We also will be taking snow coach rides to the top of a nearby mountain to watch the lights.

This workshop is led by professional nature photographer John Slonina who has been leading tours there for several years. John Chumack, a world renowned professional Astro- photographer will be the co leader.

Small Group Size: 12 People with two leaders.

Transportation Provided from Hotel to Field Locations. You do not need to rent a car.

All skill levels
