Northern Lights Over Interior Alaska’s Boreal Forest

Heading back from Denali National Park to Juneau, I spent a brief night in Fairbanks, and enjoyed watching the northern lights from a hot tub up on Chena Ridge. The aurora forecast from the Geophysical Institute was actually not very promising, and this display was likely only a 2 on a scale from 1 being low to 10 being extreme. But since we rarely see the northern lights in Juneau, I was exited to see them, even if it was just a ‘low’ display. Exposure: 11 seconds @ F3.2, ISO 1100.
