18 - 26 September 2018: VIP TOUR 

Join the astronomer Professor David Block (Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society of London) on an exclusive tour to not only witness the Aurora Borealis on the island of Senja in northern Norway, but also to interact with him and hear his unique insights based on decades of astronomical experience. In his lectures and tours, Professor Block strives to "never disappoint” - to quote an aurora chaser who accompanied Professor Block to Senja, Norway in March 2018. Another aurora chaser, Anelize Becker from New Zealand, writes these words: "Imagine watching the heavens put on the most spectacular show you have always dreamed about. A show you may have seen in photos or on movie clips. This show - the Aurora Borealis - unfolded right in front of my eyes and it was magnificent and surpassed everything I had imagined. Professor David Block is the right person to take you to the right place at the right time to watch the heavens put on a dance you won’t forget. The tour was well researched; well organised and ran with a glitch. The Professor’s greatest joy was watching his group say WOW! There is no doubt in my mind that if the Aurora is on your bucket list, this is the tour to go on.” Professor Block is a recipient of a South African award co-sponsored by BHP Billiton recognising him as one of our greatest communicators in science to the public. He has been a visiting lecturer at Harvard University, amongst many others. He has a PhD in astronomy and a Master of Science degree in relativity.
