Ah, man these are awesome, incredible photos. I had hoped to see the aurora while in the Canadian Arctic recently but only saw a very faint one our last night and it was not worth chasing. It seems Alaska is ideally situated for excellent displays of aurora if I am not mistaken. Next year is predicted to be a banner year! Well done. Love them all.
It is really hit or miss with this stuff. Sometimes I'll go a couple of weeks without seeing anything too dramatic, and then all of a sudden...
Alaska is in a pretty good place, but even within the state it depends where you are, and where the aurora happens to be active. Cool maps can be found at:
I've seen the aurora fairly far south, and I believe that in late January people were seeing it way down in states like Arkansas! Now, it wasn't directly overhead, as it often is in Fairbanks, but unusually active solar flares made for a few days of spectacular aurora in lots of places.
