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

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!

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.

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!

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
