Northern Lights Time-lapse Video

This is seriously amazing and achingly beautiful.

Alaska northern lights time-lapse: Winter’s prize for sun-starved Alaskans by Loren Holmes.

I ran across this at the Alaska Dispatch, where Loren writes “This time-lapse video, recorded Nov. 13 about 100 miles north of Anchorage between Sheep Mountain and Eureka Roadhouse, offers a glimpse of the winter prize that’s consolation for 16 hours of night time.”

I’ve never seen the aurora like this; in fact, I seldom get lucky enough to see them.  This video makes me want to seek them out and twirl under the stars while they play across the sky.  I think I’ve watched the video about ten times already.

Aren’t we lucky to live in Alaska?

I love Anchorage. I love what it is, what it's been, and what I dream it will be. I share my adventures with DJ (my husband), my fabulous family and friends, two frenchies named Grover and Teddy, and now, all of you. If you love Anchorage too, get in touch - guest posts are welcome!

  1. Gretchen, you keep bringing back so many memories! When I was playing with the symphony, driving north back to Eagle River after rehearsals I sometimes saw beautiful displays, sweeping down so low I felt I could indeed touch them. The back of our house faced north and in the early years when we lived there, no houses had yet been built above ours. There were no artificial lights to interfere except ours. We’d turn off the inside lights and stand in the driveway marveling at the glorious sky above Baldy.
