Ghostly northern lights dance silently over an autumn wildlife tent camp during the Musk-ox, Autumn Colors & Aurora' expedition on the remote tundra of Nunavik in northern Canada. Nunavik is situated beneath the ‘auroral oval’ and is listed as one of the best places in the world to observe this phenomenon. We start to see aurora displays in the Ungava Bay region in mid-August that increase in intensity into September. Photo copyright by client/photographer 2016 by Joanne Chow Winship. Joanne writes:

"The Autumn Musk ox and Northern Lights adventure was a magical experience... I went in hopes of seeing the Northern Lights, and was delighted on my first night to have them come out and dance across the sky. It was an amazing welcome to the camp where the next 10 days were filled with new discoveries... We had other thrills; coming across the musk ox, a bear, [Arctic fox] and bringing in lake trout for dinner. The food was plentiful, but there was something special about being in the wild and being able to gain sustenance from it. The dramatic sunsets, the Northern lights.., the wildlife, stunning vistas, the pure air and water... and the very competent and friendly staff made it a truly magical adventure. This is Inuit territory and we were fortunate to touch their world."
