David Block - Professor

Write Up

Professor David Block showed me images that had the capacity to make me feel insignificant and empowered in equal measures; from startling close-ups of stellar maternity wards (literally, where stars are born), to serene majesty of the Aurora Borealis. The images were taken by the professor - the first through a telescope at the European Southern Observatory in Chile, and then the second during one of his many trips to the Arctic.

"Professor Block is the right person to take you to the right place at the right time to watch the heavens put on a dance you won't forget. The tour was well researched; organised and ran without a glitch. The Professor's greatest joy was watching his group say WOW! There is no doubt in my mind that if the Aurora is on your bucket list, this is the tour to go on."

Anelize Becker, New Zealand

"Many travel to see this magical display and many return disappointed. Not us. No words feel adequate to desribe there transcient ever-changing dancing rays. Breathtakingly beautiful. So majestic, so entrancing. The trip from beginning to end was a wonderment to behold. David, your lectures from the Aurora in our night skies, intriguing "Hawking and Time" to the endearing "Einstein Piano" offered far more than an appreciation of the secular experience of the Aurora. You touched all our hearts with your knowledge, insights and passion. Unparalleled. I can't wait to go again."

Maire Eltringham, Johannesburg

"There are many, many reasons I would recommend travelling with Professor david Block to view the Aurora Borealis. His passion for and knowledge of astronomy is unparalleled .... His experience with viewing the Aurora also makes it more likely that you will see her .. Even in the stormiest of weather conditions and forcasts, he keeps you looking up."

Dr Cheryl Attree and Dr Mark Eltringham, Johannesburg
