“Big Dipper and Aurora” – Photo of the week ending December 20, 2014
The big dipper and north star is the subject of the Flag of Alaska (designed by 13 year old Benny Benson in 1927, when Alaska was still a territory). I thought it would be nice to have an aurora photo with the constellation as a centerpiece. Taken on Murphy Dome.
