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: Aurora Borealis, Yoyekoyh to the Tanana Athabaskan people. The Sky Dwellers are the Spirits of the Ancestors, keeping watch over the people.
This is the first view out my back door, and brought me an hour or two of fantastic cosmic dance.
