Brrr it is cold here in Fairbanks. They said on the news tonight that they recorded -53F at the airport this morning here in Fairbanks! Today I decided to take some time and look at some of my archived video footage. I was able to discover the earliest recorded aurora that I have ever seen. July 11th 2011 was the date. It is common to hear of the aurora in August. Not so common to hear of it in July. At some point here in the next few weeks I plan on making a few videos from this footage for the site.

  Today was also "Operation Router Rescue" I run a very extensive network on the hill. The network includes my webcams, Mt. Aurora Fairbanks creek lodge, my mom and dads old house and Skiland. My current network has 2 routers, 6 access points, 5 large wifi antennas, one IP camera, 2 wifi networks and about 10 computers. Over the years I have gathered up a bunch of routers and access points that refuse to work properly. Today I made a last ditch effort to restore as many as I could for future failure replacements. Below is a few photos of my router operations. I'm using Linux ubuntu to try to restore the firmware via tftp. More news to come soon. -Troy

Cars and snowmobiles drive by sometimes the lights are real bright

AKPaeony - No it was a wicked bright light flash that trailed down the bottom left of the screen that night! I’ve never seen anything that bright while watching the live feed over the past couple years! Sorry for the delay responding!

Troy thanks for making the change! I can now view the live cam again. Happy New Year!

SherrieP1973 did it look like a Raven? I've seen one in front of the camera last year. Very fuzzy but looks like the shape of a bird.

Troy - Wed 6 Jan - 22:01

George, I had the wrong settings for your iPad. I fixed it and saved my changes. I hope that helps. Let me know if it is still not working.

Myra - Wed 6 Jan - 06:26

That is for sure Scribe

Scribe - Wed 6 Jan - 05:51

Ah. Beautiful. Wish I was there! Troy, thank you so much for this webcam!

SherrieP1973 - Tue 5 Jan - 23:41

WHAT was that in bottom left corner?

Myra - Tue 5 Jan - 18:07

Color is pretty

Anyone having a problem with viewing the live cam? I have an IPad and I did just reboot.

Troy - Wed 30 Dec - 21:23

Yes. I had to reboot the router for some reason. It happens about once a year.

george2624 - Wed 30 Dec - 18:43

Troy did you fix it tonight?

Myra - Wed 30 Dec - 17:52

Thanks Troy looking good

Troy - Tue 29 Dec - 19:40

The live camera is offline. I’m not going to be able to restart it until tomorrow after work.

Myra - Sat 26 Dec - 17:02
