A magnetic Horseshoe crab or elaborate Head dress?   Everyone will see something  familiar in the shapes  as the Earth’s magnetic field is constantly changing the shapes of the Aurora that we get at any given time.  What do you see?

Yeah, after two years of Pandemic and not getting to conduct our Aurora Photography Workshop/Tour, this week I head back up to Alaska. I finally get to take another group to see and Capture the Northern Lights. Since we are in the Interior most of the time, my post will be intermittent, depends on the connections we have at each location, but when I get back in to either Fairbanks, or Anchorage, I will post pics when I can or when I get back to 3g – 5g civilization !. Solar activity has continued to be high, so I’m hoping we get good displays again while we are up there.

In the mean-time, here is one of the last shots I took back in 2019, while teaching our workshop.

To me the Aurora looks like a Horseshoe crab….or elaborate Head Dress.
