A Few Questions Answered..

A alot of people asked if I can see the northern lights yet. I've heard that a few people see them late late late at night..

But they don't just shoot out as soon as it gets dark. Alot of people have told me that it's not quite cold enough for them to be really heavy and out.

But I don't know? I'm new :)

As far as the weather goes, we are are really warm right now for AK.

We should be a whoooooooole lot colder and a whole lot snowier!

  1. Hey Rocksee.....if I notice a good forecast from the geophysical institute I'll let you know! The northern lights come when there are solar flares or storms on the sun. The more powerful the solar flare, the more northern lights we have. I've seen them a couple of times, late, late at night. When you live in town, it's harder to see them, too. City lights can make it pretty difficult, unless they're really strong.
    If you google aurora forecast from the geophysical institute at UAF, you should be able to see the forecast.

  3. I kind of figured the weather or something had to be a certain way in order to see the lights.

  7. Down here in Minnesota, it got cold early, warmed up a bit, and now we don't know where the !@#$ we are! Seriously -- everything is white!

    Would love to see the Lights up there. They're not bad in Northern Minnesota, so I can only imagine...
