Caption: Aurora showed up just before midnight, their dance was not so rowdy this time, and the moon was definitely competition in the night sky. The aurora borealis didn't venture very far above the northern horizon.

Thank you Kat, and we are 12/12 now, (daylight/dark) with the equinox, just like you.

Well... actually now... we are a few seconds longer day than you! :)

This is usually (if it's going to happen) going on right around midnight, an hour before and a few hours after.

I sleep late mornings I do this. :D

And the beauty just keeps coming! When do you
sleep, Katy! I wouldn't want to miss any of this,
but if there is very little daylight, I'd have to
be up all the time. Hmmm...got a Starbuck's handy?

About katy99780


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).
