aurora low on the horizon tonight

As of 12:50 the aurora became higher in the sky, but did not last long. It remains quiet with unsettled active bursts. The Kp is fluctuating between 0 and 2.

A quiet aurora appears overhead as of 3am:

quiet lately

The aurora has been quiet lately in the Fairbanks area. It has been seen in the usual great location of Yellowknife, NT, but for us here in the interior of AK, clouds, snow, and an aurora very low on the horizon gave us the much needed sleep. It seems as though we are still recovering from the 3 nights in a row we had super auroras, March 15, 16, 17, with the 17th going to bed at 5:30am after our bodies simply gave out. A few other photographers reported they went to bed only after the sunshine forced them too.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner posted a collection of photos from that night here at . You can also buy it in print today, March 23, 2013.
