The early light of a new dawn grows stronger while the aurora fades into memory as seen from our Twelve-Mile Summit camp March 29, 2008 about 80 miles northeast of Fairbanks. I retired to my sleeping bag for a few short hours and woke to a blazing sun. Our little windbreak had turned into a great reflector and over our morning coffee we soon realized that we would surely fry in the intensified sunlight if we stayed too long. It was time to go so after packing our strung-out gear we started our three-day journey back to Homer. Copyright (c) Dennis C.

While looking through my image files I ran across this jewel I had overlooked before. This image was acquired on March 24, 2007 from the beach at Deep Creek, Alaska on the Kenai Peninsula. The beach, along the eastern shore of Cook Inlet, is littered with ice that has been washed up and glazed by the waves and tides during a long spell of unseasonably cold temperatures. Across the Inlet 10,197 foot Redoubt Volcano is visible at left.The aurora borealis twists and curls into spiral formations to the right of the volcano and is then reflected in the waters of the inlet. Further to the right, a void in the aurora creates the effect of a shadow cast into the night sky by the cone-shaped volcano. Nitrogen fringing is visible as reddish emissions in the bands of aurora at right as particularly powerful particles penetrate the Earth's atmosphere to altitudes down to 35-40 miles high as opposed to the common green oxygen emissions that take place between about 50 and 100 miles altitude. These types of emissions by molecular nitrogen are as close to the ground as the aurora ever gets. A bright moon is seen at the left and reflected in the water. Moonlight sparkles off the icy beach in the foreground. I used a custom-built 6x9cm. medium-format camera and Kodak E100VS film for the origional image. COPYRIGHT (C) Dennis C.

The aurora started out slowly tonight but it did not disappoint. Here is a shot during the main substorm that came in the early hours of March 29, 2008 as seen above our camp at Twelve-Mile Summit about 80 miles out of Fairbanks. Copyright (c) Dennis C.

As the camp fire was dying down the aurora began to intensify. It was easily casting shadows on the snow during this moonless night of March 27-28, 2008 along the Chena River east of Fairbanks. This display became so bright that I didn't even notice my headlamp was still on throwing its red light onto the foreground. The sky became bright enough that snipes had taken to the air with their strange whooing noises that they make in flight, a ritual usually saved for the afternoon or evening twilight. An owl hooted from a nearby tree. We sat in silence. Copyright (c) Dennis C. Anderson Night Trax City: Not in a city

The aurora was growing so intense that it was leaving shadows on the snow during an outing on the Chena River east of Fairbanks, Alaska on this night of March 26-27, 2008. It was impossible to hold still. There were so many things going on in all parts of the sky at one time. This arc in the northwest had suddenly brightened and formed many rays with purplish undersides that indicated very energetic particles were now penetrating the Earth's atmosphere to lower levels than the most common green type of aurora. I used a 6x9 cm. medium format camera and a 50mm wide-angle lens to record the spectacular sight above our campsite. Copyright (c) Dennis C.
