Aurora borealis over the Granite Tors trail in Alaska
Aurora Going Strong – Granite Tors, Alaska

Aurora borealis from the Granite Tors trail in the Chena River State Recreation Area near Fairbanks. This was one of the longest-lasting bright displays I have ever seen. What started as a faint glow when I opened my tent door, erupted overhead and shimmered strong for over 40 minutes. In this shot, you can see the city lights glow of Fairbanks about 30 miles away.
