Aurora Time Lapse

Posted by lwpetersen | January 9, 2011 | aurora borealis

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 time. The few times it has acted up the clouds roll in just in time. My patience (or rather compulsion) paid off last night when I was out shooting time-lapse until 2:30 am when the clouds rolled in again.
