Departing Perth

Departing: 08 May 2021

Departing from Perth you will fly into the night and bear witness to one of the world’s most indescribable natural phenomena. Join Aurora hunter and astrophysicist Dr Ian Griffin and a team of expert astronomers on board a private Qantas Boeing 787-9 as you head over the Southern Ocean toward Antarctica. As we take you far away from the light pollution you will drift high above the clouds and weather systems to see a magical and unforgettable display with an uninterrupted view of the Southern Lights – where Aurora Australis is brightest. 

You will see constellations, stars and planets as you have never witnessed them before. Throughout the flights you will receive a full inflight catering service in both business and economy classes. Expert astronomers will provide information on route about how an aurora is created, as well as pointing out their favourite night sky objects. They will instruct you on how to photograph an aurora and we will have a photographer onboard to assist on how best to use your cameras.
