Aurora Over A-frame

Region: Polar Regions

Site: Fairbanks - Alaska - USA

Date: 2001 March 19


From the photographer: On the night of March 19/20, 2001, the sky over this A-frame house at Skiland on Mt. Aurora (Fairbanks, Alaska) lit up with auroral colors. Even the snow was illuminated by the predominantly green color of the lights. On the lower left of the sky shines the Pleiades star cluster, aka the Seven Sisters. On the upper right lie the stars of Perseus, and the bright star Capella shines on the upper left. The lights appear blurred because they were moving quite rapidly during the exposure.
