Aurora Awash

Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Early this morning, couldn't sleep. I looked out the window and the sky was fairly bright with aurora borealis. Not a lot of action, and not a lot of colors, just more of a 'wash' across the early morning sky. (got a satellite also)

Thank you Michal!

I also heard from YouKnowWho, Eileen, she provided a link to SpaceWeather.com, and they have a chart that tells you where in the sky the ISS will be on any given day, as well as any other Earth-orbiting satellites.

I've found this site to check ISS current position:
http://iss.astroviewer.net/
ISS orbit is changing all the time and sometimes it goes near southern border of Alaska so I think you may see it.

Thank you James and Michal!

Michal I don't even know where the ISS orbit is, I wonder if it travels this high latitude? This satellite (if that's what it is) is traveling north, pole-to-pole? I didn't know any did that.

Wonderful view! I'd love to see aurora in person some day. I like that satellite too! Sometimes I see the ISS but I've never taken a photo of it.
Congratulations, Katy!

Dave that would be so awesome, for us Aurora-freaks!

Everyone else on the planet might get a little upset... when communications on EVERYTHING broke down. But we'd get some awesome pictures, so no problem! :P

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
