Discover the Northern Lights in Östersund

Join astro photographer Göran Strand in the grand darkness and silence at the beautiful Stocke Titt on Frösön. There is a great chance to experience the magical light phenomenon aurora borealis, more commonly known as the northern lights. The evening begins with an inspiring lecture on the aurora, as well as how to best handle your camera to catch the phenomenon.

Then its time to get out and look for the Northerns Lights, enjoy a warm drink / Swedish fika and the silence. In bad weather conditions, we will be indoors and have a longer lecture on the aurora and photography.
