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

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.

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)

Troy - Thu 26 Mar - 23:06

Could’ve been a owl.

Troy - Thu 26 Mar - 23:05

Not likely a Raven at 2:30am. Ravens roost together in a tree at night. Last year I had a pet fox that would hang around when I went up to the camera. Or could be a person. If it’s a person they normally have a light.

AKPaeony - Thu 26 Mar - 03:16

it's a Raven sitting in the same spot trying to spot food running by. Hope it's finds something.

AKPaeony - Thu 26 Mar - 02:39

Either there was a Raven by the camera or a person? Time 2:38 am?

Myra - Sun 22 Mar - 02:14

Just restarted the server. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. This weekend I plan in testing some software/ hardware for the webcam. I’ll let you know before I make changes.

Troy - Mon 9 Mar - 20:59
