Thanks Debbie and Kevin.

No Kevin, those were Alaska Airlines to and from Fairbanks, I think. If they had been going a different direction, I would have been excited that they might be satellites.

Thanks Trudy, Mara and Jen!

Mara those are planes, both Alaska Airlines. :)

I think I need to get my shots timed closer together, so the gif 'flows' more smoothly.

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).
