Watch the Churchill Northern Studies Centre - Northern Lights LIVE
Founded in 1976, the Churchill Northern Studies Centre is an independent, non-profit research and education facility located 23 km east of the town of Churchill, Manitoba. They provide support to scientific researchers working on a diverse range of topics related to northern science and facilitate a wide range of educational programming, from general interest courses to university credit courses.
The Centre is ideally situated along the Hudson Bay seacoast at the meeting of three major biomes: marine, northern boreal forest, and tundra. This means that there is an incredible amount of diversity of local human cultures, plants, birds, and mammals, including polar bears.To the east of the Centre lies Wapusk National Park which protects the inland denning area of the polar bear. Polar bears can sometimes be seen easily from the Centre, especially during the fall polar bear migration.
The CNSC is also located directly beneath the aurora oval. Churchill, Manitoba is one of the best places 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. The late winter and early spring are the best viewing time for the aurora, so keep an eye out over February and March for a spike in Northern Lights activity!
From the CNSC Cam (via explore.org) we are able to watch beautiful sunrises and sunsets, northern lights in late winter, gorgeous plant communities in the spring, and all sorts of wildlife in the summer and fall.
The Churchill Northern Studies Centre is really your one-stop destination to view all cool things in the Arctic, no matter the time of day or year. Please experience this beautiful place with us and let us know what you see!
