p.1 #1 · Abstact Auroras


A geomagnetic storm moderate level (G2), made for some more amazing and different looking auroras over Fairbanks early in the morning on March 17th. These photos all have the "Big Dipper" in the image.

Thanks for looking!

C & C always welcome.

Nice concept! As far as the colours go I like the first most.

Dave,
These are all great. The 3rd one has "Star Trek" feel to it!
Can I ask where/near Fairbanks you took these?
I will be up there by the 30th (driving the Alcan) and am interested in good locations.

Thanks
Dan

What a rush is it to see a really good display of these.

I like the dipper - adds a good sense of scale.

Hi Dan,

These were taken just past Cleary Summit on the Steese Hwy. There are several pull-outs as you go down the road into the valley. It takes 20 to 30 minutes to drive there from Fairbanks.

There's a large parking area at Cleary Summit too. However, I wouldn't advise trying to photograph from there due to car traffic (headlights) entering and exiting the parking lot.

Other popular spots are Ester Dome and Murphy Dome.

Here's a link to the aurora forecast page: http://www.gi.alaska.edu/AuroraForecast

Have a great trip up the Alcan!

Dave

Ray,

Yes, it was great to see. Needless to say there was a lot of "oohing and aahing" occurring.

Sweet shots David. Couldn't you ask one of your friendly bears to stay still in the foreground.

Thanks Harsha... those lazy bears are still sleeping dreaming of summer and salmon.
