This is a 3 part post please read everything so you dont miss out on juicy details later. First off we had a very nice aurora last night which started out very cloudy. My guest at the Mt. Aurora Fairbanks Creek Lodge reported that the aurora started around 12am. They were able to take some very nice photos. I had to go to bed early due to a chance that I had to work at the ski area the next morning.

Are you a aurora watcher in the Fairbanks area? Have you asked yourself any of the following questions: Where do I go to see the aurora? What happens if I need to use the bathroom while I'm out? I wish I could have a nice place to stay and watch the aurora? I could use some help with some basic aurora photography tips?

Well if you answered any of those questions with a yes, I'm hosting an aurora viewing at the Skiland lodge. The price is $25 per person. It includes warm place to stay, bathrooms, free coffee and tea. Group rates avaiable. Please contact me via e-mail for more details

Finally last night was the second test of my time lapse program. I have posted it on facebook. It should also be embedded here below this post.

Happy to see the aurora again! Have to remember to stay tuned, as we are 4 hrs. ahead of you now...kind of difficult to watch during peak times.

Troy - Fri 20 Sep - 22:03

yes. Right now we have some light rain and water drops on the camera. Not going to see much action until the rain clears up. I will restart the camera server tomorrow just to make sure everything is going ok.

Another fine night for the aurora. Not so sure what the weather model is doing. Showing light rain right now.

Well your valley is getting more action than my valley Troy. That solar wind is fast and creating some great movement & pretty colors.

PresB01 - Sat 31 Aug - 23:56

AKPaeony - Sat 31 Aug - 22:51

I can see something in the upper left corner and when I look out my back door in Two Rivers there is a white band going all the way across the sky!
