This is so beautiful! On my bucket list to see someday!
you’re right, Carolyn. It’s sooo amazing. Do a trip to see them. But, we’re coming to the low level of the 14 years cycle of solar wind activity. Have a look in my other post https://solaner.wordpress.com/2016/03/13/im-back-16/ to get some more details.
I remember seeing these, so unbelievable. I would be jumping for joy. Have family in Alaska and we have visited several times in the winter but, have never been lucky enough to see them.
what a pity. Maybe, you’re too far north. It’s only a band where you can see them.
family lives in Anchorage and we just haven’t been lucky enough to see them when we have visited, I know they can see them there but odds increase further north in the state
I looked up the latitude of Anchorage. It’s inside the Aurora band. So, you really have had bad luck. What a pity. But, in a few years the change will increase again, when solar activity increases.
I’d have expected, the chances of clear night skies were better in Canada and Alska than Scandinavia, because of the not existing influence of the gulf stream.
I have friends there now but in Fairbanks and further north. Looking forward to seeing their photos when they return! Thanks for all the information.
you’re welcome, Carolyn!
yep, that’s really a wow experience.
I’m soooo happy to have seen them.
