Default Be alert for auroras this weekend...

I checked, and according to weather.com we should have clear sky conditions here at the lake tonight.

Default Aurora in Alaska

When I was stationed at Eielson AFB AK just SE of Fairbanks, we would get fantastic light shows. I will try to dig up pics I took. There was little to no light pollution, so even rather faint displays showed up and were easily viewed.

Interesting reading, if the sky clears maybe more light shows.

Default We saw none

Having spent last weekend in Northern Maine we did not notice anything.
We go out quite a bit at night to let the dogs out too.
