In March 2015, a team from the Montreal Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium travelled to Yellowknife, in the Northwest Territories, to spend many frigid nights filming no fewer than 179,000 images of the northern lights, in 360°. The crew had the perfect conditions to observe these shimmering waves of light, beneath a clear sky far from sources of light pollution. In these northern regions, aurorae borealis are visible 240 nights a year, on average.
