Event Details

As part of the 2023 Summer Lecture Series, Ross Ellet, a meteorologist at the ABC affiliate in Toledo, Ohio, and a space weather expert will discuss geomagnetic storms, aurora borealis and how to best photograph the Northern Lights, even if you only have an iPhone, at the University of Michigan Biological Station, an 11,000-acre research and teaching campus just south of the Mackinac Bridge on Douglas Lake. Ellet produces a weekly segment called “Spacing Out” that focuses on night sky highlights and publishes a weekly Great Lakes aurora forecast each Thursday. An aurora chaser, Ross has traveled to the Arctic of Alaska and a variety of locations in northern Michigan, southern Canada, and northern Manitoba to photograph the Northern Lights.
