This morning the sun ejected a X5-class solar flare towards the Earth. Goddard Space Weather Lab experts believe the CME will reach Earth on March 8th 0625 UT (+/- 7 hrs) Experts also believe that this CME could cause strong to severe geomagnetic storms. They said sky watchers at ALL LATITUDES should be alert for auroras. From the last statement I would recommend to all viewers that it maybe a good idea to try to find a dark place to view the aurora.  Currently we are having a snow storm here in Fairbanks Alaska. The forecast is calling for cloudy or partly cloudy skies for the rest of the week. If there is a strong aurora we maybe able to see it between a break in the clouds. More news to come soon. -Troy

Due to almost 24 hour daylight the chance to see the aurora is slim to none until sometime in August. I will try to keep the cameras going through the summer. Currently I’m having a issue with my internet. So the live camera is offline.

Looking good with me. Thanks Troy.

Troy - Sat 1 May - 19:55

let me know how it’s working for you?

Troy - Sat 1 May - 19:54

I was able to get some temporary internet going. I’m not sure how stable this will be. I will check on the cameras soon to see if they are still going. I will update here if something happens again.

Myra - Sat 1 May - 16:18

Ok Thanks

Troy - Sat 1 May - 12:24

Heading up to the camera site today to try to get some type of temporary network installed enough to run the cameras.

2” of snow forecast tomorrow. Still no word from ISP. I’m calling around for another. I can’t go with the new one I just called as I need to install a new service pole.

Troy, it looks like you've tried your best and I'm certain that you'll find a solution. Be thankful that most people are busy diverting water and the sky hasn't been that active with a full moon and longer day light. 4 ' of snow = problems :)

Troy - Tue 27 Apr - 15:14

No reply from ISP (Internet service provider) Trying to find backup or alternate. This could take days. I will post more when I get some answers. I’m sorry everyone.

Troy - Sun 25 Apr - 20:39

Internet is still out at the camera site. I’ve tried to call tech support. No reply. Hopefully since tomorrow is Monday I can get it going again and back online. Otherwise I’ll need to find a new internet company. Sorry everyone.

Troy - Sat 24 Apr - 22:05

I'll try to go out and point it at some aurora later

Troy - Sat 24 Apr - 22:03

Currently running a setup from home since internet is down at the cam site

Troy - Sat 24 Apr - 22:01

For some reason the internet is down at the camera site. I’m not sure how well this is going to work.

Troy - Sat 24 Apr - 12:21

Troy - Tue 20 Apr - 21:15
