"March 2011 Aurora"


Anchorage, US
          

This was shot with the D700 - Noct combination on a night when the moon was dark and the Aurora was active. It was shot in the Turnagain Pass area. It is about 50 miles from home but it is the closest sky without light pollution.

Among others.

There are about 5 different sites I refer to on a regular basis as many times there may be a delay in updating or conflicting information.

And like weather, nothing beats an eyeball on the sky.

There are several web based Aurora Cams one can check as well.

NOAA Space Weather
SolarHam
Spaceweather.com
UAF Aurora Forecast
Yellowknife Aurora
Tromso Norway

A couple of FaceBook Groups.

Etc.

The small image looks very good, but the larger image is REALLY nice. Well done!

Thanks for sharing,
