This is one of the best videos we’ve seen of this year’s aurora.
It was taken at Olnes Pond in the Fairbanks North Star Borough, a little over twenty miles from our home.
It is a time-lapse production set to a beautiful instrumental.
Watching the nighttime sky dance as it does in this video is one of many reasons we could never leave the Last Frontier.
Credit for this extraordinary video goes to Taro Nakai, Micrometeorologist (a researcher of micrometeorology: the dynamics of the interaction between plant and atmosphere), who is a postdoctoral fellow of International Arctic Research Center at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
