I decided to start a new thread that has some of the shots I take of Alaska..... other than aurora. I think that someone asked for some.

I was driving home from the grocery store at 3:30 and the moon was in a clear blue sky against the snow covered mountains.

I did not have my camera, so took a few shots with my phone.

The best shots were actually as I was driving, but I was alone in the car, so no way to take the pictures.

I recently found a very nice shop called the "Beaded Moose
Boutique" that is only a few blocks from the house and overlooks the lake. They have given me permission to pull into their parking lot and shot Aurora, which will be very nice.....

Anyhow this shot is taken from their parking lot.

Yes those are cars on the lake, and the huts are ice fisherman......

Not sure if I want to trust it with my RV.... but it could be some interesting aurora shots.....

As usual from a camera phone, the moon is not nearly as bright as in person.


I wish I had done a panorama shot, the mountains go all of the way around behind you.

One of these days the aurora and clear nights will align again.

We are near the minimum of the 11 year solar cycle, so things are quiet. There has been several good KP level days, but on all of them there is cloud cover......

I did go out one night, but all I got was a bland white aurora that looked like white clouds rolling by. except it was midnight and dark......

I did not bother to post it.....
