Welcome to

We welcome your visit to learn more about the northern lights and to experience the aurora borealis through the camera lens of Alaska's Aurora Hunter, Todd Salat.

Good Friends

Happy Aurora Season,

After a long & fruitful summer in the Land of the Midnight Sun it's quite nice to see the stars again and the star attraction of Alaska's nighttime, the aurora!

Wherever you are, may your earth weather be clear, space weather be active and your eyes awake enough to catch the lights. You're also invited to share in my latest night owl maneuvers at

Warm Regards,

Solar Cycle Graph

Below is a graph illustrating when in the solar cycle I've taken some of my favorite shots. More sunspots leads to more solar flares which, in turn, means more aurora activity! And we are in the peak phase right now.

Precious Metals

This is my 3rd year of having my aurora & scenic shots printed on aluminum and the results have been With Out Words–WOW! The inks are dye-infused onto a specially-coated aluminum sheet and sealed with a gemlike UV coating that is both water and scratch resistant. We have commonly heard people say, "It's like looking through a window"...."Are these backlit?"...."They look so 3D." And the archival quality is out of this world (think century plus). This is a technological breakthrough and the results are in HIGH DEF!
