auroras coming

Exciting information for us aurora watchers. In the next few days, expect to see the northern lights, state of Alaska, Canada, and possibly the upper portion of the lower 48. We will keep you updated on a nightly basis, or you can read more yourself on or See the solar flare yourself at YouTube video


aurora faintly seen in the Fairbanks, North Pole areas at 430 to 5am.
A few reports of meteors from all over the state, however, due to the hour, I think most people are asleep! The clouds had finally blown away well after midnight, and the few who remained awake got the show.
