Fairbanks Daily News-Miner – Extreme high pressure system may affect Alaska aviation

The weather this month has been crazy. Started out the New Year 40-50 degrees above average and it has remained pretty mild. Today it's really windy which is very abnormal for Faibanks. Now there is...

Yesterday

Yesterday (January 9th 2011) started on the previous day. Like I said in the previous post, I went outside to plug the car in at 2 am and had to rush back into the house,...

Second Dose

I went outside last night at 2 am to plug in the car before going to bed and the sky was green! I just caught the end of it, but here's another (better) short time...

Aurora Time Lapse

Another cloudy night gave way to a short auroral show last night. Fairbanks just hasn't been getting the luck that Scandinavia and Greenland have lately. The Sun has been pretty quiet lately, most of the...

Contrast and Color

I walked around campus today to try to take pictures in the most awful lighting conditions imaginable. It was the perfect test for me and for my new camera. First of all, at solar noon...

Lucky Break

Amidst all the clouds and snowing last night, we did get a short reprieve where the clouds broke and the sky opened up for about five minutes to show what was going on the other...

Night

It's been so long since we've had a good auroral display that now I'm getting antsy. Supposedly a solar windstream from a coronal hole was going to hit us yesterday, then today, now the 7th....

UAF

It was (once again) a beautiful morning. It's starting to cool off a little, but still fairly warm. I wanted a few pictures of campus so here is what I took. I really like this...

Back to The Grind . . . Sort of

Today Kate had to go back to work. So, with little else to do I shuffled my feet back to the office to start writing some lesson plans for next semester. I have about two...

Our Home

I really like our dry cabin. It is tucked away in the woods away from town, but still only a five minute drive to the University. We have a few neighbors who are quiet and...

Unseasonably Warm Temperatures, Domes and Dog Mushing

I have become very preoccupied with my new camera. It arrived a few days ago and it has been hard to put down. I wanted to share a few of my favorite pictures from the...

Oh man, have I been lazy

So the last three days have been pretty much spent doing nothing. Watched some DVD's, made it to the grocery store, played Carcassonne with Kate. We had a wonderful Christmas morning and day and have...

Happy Solstice!

The Tanana Valley and Denali just after the Solstice sunset. This was our shortest day of the year at 3 hours 41 minutes 22 seconds. Today will be 9 seconds longer, and in a about...

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, It’s December

Since I won't be posting much again until the semester is over, I thought it would be nice to post some photos daily on my flickr account. Just random stuff that goes on and that...

New Day

World daylight map from die.netSo, even though it's pretty dark in Fairbanks right now (sunrise to sunset for December 7th: 4h 12m 30s), because of the shallow angle that the Sun sets we get a...

Next Week and a Half

Just so you know, I probably won't post much in the next couple of weeks or so. Next week is finals week, and there's a lot of work and grading to wrap up. Check back...

Cold Snap

Sunrise with parhelia over Fairbanks.This time last week it was in the mid-thirties and raining. This morning it was thirty below zero. That's almost a 70 degree drop in temperature in a week!Around 1:00 pm...
