I spent the night at Olnes Pond, just north of Fairbanks on Saturday night. About 9 adults and 6 children were present as well. It was a great night to sit by a fire and watch the northern lights. The show was mostly faint, but occasionally, the lights brightened and reflected over the pond. About 4-5am, the aurora was toward the south, not a usual direction to look from our latitude. A good time was had by all.
