In 2013, Associate Editor Liz Kruesi and I took separate trips to the Arctic to witness the northern lights and serve as astronomy experts for a tour of other night-sky enthusiasts. Liz visited Iceland in February, and I toured the Norwegian coast in November. While hunting the aurora borealis was the highlight of both trips, we also packed in a lot of other sightseeing into our journeys. Our July issue overviewed our trips, but here are 18 more photographs from our Arctic travels.
