Outstanding work on all of them but I really like #3. I hope to get up there some day...

Thanks.

Yes, number 3 was quite different when taking the photos. The Auroras were moving around in different directions, and faster than usual.

Wonderful shots! I think #2 is my favorite. I would love to see the northern lights someday.

Number 2 shows a cabin that has a large glass window. The light was on when I took the photo, or photos (I took several). I have gone back several times to the same place, but haven't seen any Auroras displays like the first one. I was standing at fork on the road when I took photo #2. The next time I was there I took photos of the Auroras toward the other road (the left of the fork). This photo:

I love the stars up there :). Hopefully we get some more storms before it stays light longer over here.

Yes, hopefully we can see some Auroras within the next two weeks. By 21 June we have 24 hours of daylight. Then by Mid September the Auroras can be seen by 10:00 PM. Sunsets happen around 9:00 PM.

Heads-up for you :)

Maybe you will see some Auroras on your side of the pond? There will probably be a cloud cover over the interior of Alaska tonight, so maybe I won't be outdoors looking at the Auroras.

Thank you, Sunman!
