Aurora August 31 to September 1, 2013

By Troutnut on September 1st, 2013
My dad and brother flew in to Fairbanks for a visit last night, and had the good luck to catch the second best display of aurora I've seen in six years in Alaska. The pictures don't do justice to the way these beams shot and shimmered across the sky, but they still show that my visitors had incredibly lucky timing. These pictures were taken just a few miles outside Fairbanks.

Nice! Seems like your father and brother have some good timing! Maybe you should take them fishing! ;)

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sure a photo does not do it justice because of the ever-shimmering constant movement...but those sure are some COOL photos anyway!!!

Funny thing you posted this today, Jason - I just had a dream about seeing the Aurora last night! Haven't seen them in a while myself, looking forward to catching one here again eventually.

Thanks for sharing, those are amazing pics!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
