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).

Caption: The sky had just a bit of hazy, faint glow all evening as we were driving home, then suddenly the energy seemed to 'gather itself' into dynamic and colorful bands, whirling and snaking across the entire sky.
We haven't had aurora like this all winter. (I couldn't be HAPPIER about the new lens, it almost felt like the aurora forces 'knew', and were smiling. As I was!)
