Details:
An alert PI woke me at 3:30 ADST to catch a fleeting glimpse of the wandering aurora almost directly north from the Toolik Lake LTER research site. I wish I had been quicker, as this barely represents the wonderful glow against the northern skies. I look forward to tonight when the solar wind stream is expected to be stronger. This shot is from the sauna deck looking over Toolik Lake, Alaska
