Ed-
I suppose you're aware that this last year has been a low ebb in the solar phenomena that results in the aurora boriealis...a cyclic low even for Anchorage...our northern lights predictor in the daily newspaper used words like low, quiet, etc., unless one was in Fairbanks or points further north...

Ed, Don,

It looks like Fairbanks is trying to make up for the low ebb as seen elsewhere. What a display!

Latitudinally Yellowknife is midway between Anchorage and Fairbanks. This fall has promise!
