This is a reminder about the new webcam setup.  You will need Adobe Flash Player in order to view the webcam. This is a change from before when the camera was ran off of windows media.  You can click this link here to test your computer to see if you have Adobe Flash Player installed correctly.

 Some people are reporting problems logging into the site.  This can normally be fixed by clearing your browsers cache and deleting your cookies.  If you do not know how to do these steps you can E-mail me for support or you can try your hand at google. 

 I have also had some issues with some of the original members for the site.  If your billing statement says $20.00 a year and not $19.99 you are the people I'm talking about.  Since I made the mistake of changing the billing to $19.99 a year those people that already paid $20.00 a year have to be updated manually after their account expires.  Though it sounds like an easy fix to change it back I cannot change it back to $20.00.  This is due to the fact PayPal's subscription goes into your personal PayPal account.  Here is the good news.  If you are paying $20.00 a year and your account does not update. Please look in the forums for the fix.  -Fix Link-

I have standby this weekend for work. I should be able to talk more Monday evening. Please let me know if you have any more questions. Post them here or email them to me. I’m going to try to get some sleep before work calls me again. Cya soon!

After that you have to check the local forecast. Normally if the sky is clear and the stars are out you have a pretty good chance of seeing “some” aurora. If you time it when we are having a solar storm then it can be a lot better

Hi guys! Welcome new members. I just got done with a very long shift at the day job. I personally use spaceweather.com They do a pretty good job of letting you know when big solar storms are coming. I think I’m using the free newsletter email.

Soft serve news lets you know!

Hey guys! Loving the page :)! How can I know when it is more likely to see the lights? How “far” in advance can you know?

Myra - Sun 5 Apr - 07:01

It has been snowing at the cam. That is why you can't see

Donnacole1 - Sun 5 Apr - 06:55

I am new to the page so I’m not sure what we are suppose to be seeing. So far I’ve only viewed the same cloudy picture, does it change?

Troy - Fri 3 Apr - 21:52

on i can see the very tip of the tree on lower right

Troy - Fri 3 Apr - 21:51

pretty heavy snow predicted tonight. I don't think there will be much to look at.

Troy - Wed 1 Apr - 20:03

Troy - Wed 1 Apr - 14:25

The original video is 56 MB in case you want that version?

Troy - Sat 28 Mar - 13:22

The video does indeed look like a Raven. Im going to see if i can post it so everyone else can look at it if they want.

AKPaeony - Fri 27 Mar - 23:29

I don't know? The head was too small for a owl and too spastic where it didn't stop moving. (I've sent Troy to video I look of my computer screen)
