April 16-17, 2021. This was exciting for me!
It's been over 5 years since I've made a timelapse. I used to make them frequently but just lost interest. I will be doing them a lot more in the future! Many plans for next season!
A few photos and a timelapse. In Fairbanks, we have to say goodbye to the aurora in April. We've already begun the time when the Sun dips no more than 18 degrees below the horizon at night (astronomical twilight). In a week it will go no further than 12 degrees below the horizon (nautical twilight) and only the brightest stars
will be visible. By mid-May it never quite gets dark and the Sun starts setting after midnight and rising only a few hours later. But, last night around midnight I walked outside to these sights! An almost dark sky with lots of aurora colors filling it! A category G1 geomagnetic storm sparked auroras that were even seen in the northern states of the lower 48.
