About

Aurora Borealis and Milky Way Galaxy Glacier National Park Book

Aurora Borealis & the Milky Way Galaxy over Glacier National Park Book
Aurora Borealis & the Milky Way Galaxy over Glacier National Park Book

Goal of this Campaign

Print a book of photographs on two subjects, the aurora borealis and the Milky Way Galaxy, captured over Glacier National Park, Montana.  Inside the book I explain what causes the northern lights and where to see the galactic center of the Milky Way Galaxy.  All photographs in the book were taken by me in the beautiful national park set aside in Northwest Montana known as Glacier.

Also in the book is several photographs of the newly recognized and ultra rare atmospheric phenomenon "S.T.E.V.E." (strong thermal emission velocity enhancement).  I watched STEVE at Logan Pass in late September a few years ago and was able to document the progression of strange light behavior for more than 40 minutes.

Another rare set of photographs in the book shows the northern lights coupled with the Sprague Wildfire at Lake McDonald from August 2017.  This is the wildfire that burned the historic back country Sperry Chalet.

The book is written, designed and the photographs are already taken.  The book measures 8.5 x 11 inches wide, 22 inches wide when open.  It contains more than 50 photographs from over 25 locations inside Glacier National Park, Montana.  The book will be printed in Kalispell Montana and be shipped to you in late July. 


About the author Victor Brozovich

I worked and lived in Glacier National Park for ten years.  During that time I collected hundreds of thousands of photographs in Glacier, many of the dark night skies.  On multiple occasions I was lucky enough to witness and photograph the northern lights from several places within the park. I also became interested in the Milky Way, and learned to follow it across the night skies over the course of the summer.

Help bring this made in Montana product to life.  Photographed, written, designed and printed in Montana.  

Risks and challenges

The photographs are already taken and the book is both written and designed. I've discussed the printing with a local company in Kalispell, and hitting our timeline is not a problem. The books will be printed in Kalispell, and they will be sent out in late July.
