Here’s a beautiful photo of the Aurora Borealis taken by our daughter’s father-in-law, Neal Brown ((Here’s the story of how Neal had a road named after him. He used to be the director of Poker Flat Research Range, near Fairbanks. “Unbeknownst to me my sidekick, operations controller Mary Farrell at Poker, responded to a Fairbanks North Star Borough (like a county here in Alaska) request to have a name for all roads to use in their 911 call system, by submitting my name for the road leading off of the Steese highway, 30 miles north of Fairbanks, into Poker Flat Research Range.”)), who’s a rocket scientist and an oft-cited authority on the Aurora, living in Fairbanks.
Coincidentally, after Neal sent us this photo, I happened to run across a time-lapse of the Aurora (below).
Check out Neal’s nifty website, “The Aurora Explained.”
Terje Sorgjerd’s Time-Lapse Video of the Aurora:
“Photographer Terje Sorgjerd captured 22,000 amazing high-definition photographs of the Northern Lights and then assembled them into a time-lapse video. The Hans Zimmer/Lisa Gerrard song ‘Now We Are Free” accompanies the video.’ ”
