Aurora Borealis

On September 20 my roommate woke me up just past midnight to let me know that he had seen the Aurora Borealis! I quickly put on some layers and got my camera to head out into the night to take a look at this amazing spectacle. While my coworkers and I were out we watched the Aurora creep up overhead, which apparently is very rare for this location in Alaska. We were lucky enough to get a cool, clear night for a change instead of the normal rain and clouds. We also got to see some shooting stars, and some bears fishing all while this was happening. I’ll be posting more Aurora pictures in the future! Not a bad start for a birthday :p
