Colorful northern lights above Alaska. As noted by the photographer “It was March 3, 2001, and it was the birthday of a friend of mine. I was filming from the Knik Valley, just north of Anchorage, Alaska. Looking north, I knew the red aurora I was seeing was directly over my home city of Fairbanks, about 200 miles to the north, and also the home of my friend whose birthday it was that night. Like the flames rising from a set of birthday candles, it was easy to think of making a special wish if one could only blow out that magnificent light that night. Happy Birthday my friend! I hope you are looking up tonight.”
