The last week or so we have had some really bad weather. Between the snow storms we also had an ice storm. Due to the clouds and the heavy snow the aurora webcam has been dropping. To combat this I have been looking for a more stable ISP (Internet device provider). Additionally I have been trying to restart the cam a few times a night. 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)

Could’ve been a owl.

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.

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?

Oh so pretty love the colors

Thanks Troy.

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

I cleaned off the camera and now it’s snowing again

Troy - Tue 3 Mar - 20:53

Troy - Tue 3 Mar - 20:24

Troy - Tue 3 Mar - 20:24
