Let's Tango

Submitted by: Ulrike Haug at Wed Oct 22 08:32:01 2003 UTC

On the night of the 16/17th October 2003, the lights were very vivid and errupted in a Tango of a substorm. Here the purple edge of the green curtain was not that intense yet, but as the tango continued and the partner bands drifted apart, the right band turned into a bright and vivid purple.

Weather balloon launched

Submitted by: Ulrike Haug at Thu Mar 27 23:19:01 2003 UTC

On the 5th of March shortly after moonset, the aurora picked up in activity. The first part of the display showed quite a bit of red as Poker Flat launched a balloon, leaving a red trail as it climbed, to check the winds. Although the aurora was excellent, high winds in the upper altitude prevented them from launching that night. More images can be viewed at www.AlaskaAurora.com All images © Ulrike Haug.

The rays of the aurora teased the big dipper, weaving in and out of the stars, tempting the dipper to capture the light beams. You can view more images at www.AlaskaAurora.com Images are © Ulrike Haug.


21. March 2003 Aurora

Submitted by: Ulrike Haug at Tue Mar 25 06:16:01 2003 UTC

The aurora danced during the equinox night, as if celebrating the arrival of spring. The moon had not risen yet, thus the display was the center of attention. You can view more images at www.AlaskaAurora.com Images are © Ulrike Haug.

Moose and Aurora

Submitted by: Ulrike Haug at Mon Dec 2 09:06:01 2002 UTC

While photographing the aurora, I heard some crunching sound in the snow and soon discovered the dark spots in the snow. Shining my lights let me realize that a moose cow and calf were in the neighborhood, searching for food under the aurora lit sky. What a treat! I kept my distance to both animals and enjoyed their brief presence. © Ulrike Haug, www.AlaskaAurora.com


Reflected Beauty

Submitted by: Ulrike Haug at Mon Dec 2 08:59:01 2002 UTC

With the warm temperatures we have had this fall, the Tanana River was still wide open on the 5th November 2002. The aurora danced with its reflection doubling the beauty. © Ulrike Haug, www.AlaskaAurora.com

Submitted by: Ulrike Haug at Sat Oct 26 03:04:01 2002 UTC

A quick glimpse that was taken during the brief aurora substorm that we saw from Interior Alaska on the 23rd October 2002 (around 5:50 UTC 24.10.2002). The lights became so bright that the ice and snow reflected the green color. © Ulrike Haug, www.AlaskaAurora.com


April Blues

Submitted by: Ulrike Haug at Wed Oct 23 17:47:01 2002 UTC

In the fading of the mid April darkness, the aurora dances softly in the remaining twilight leaving me with the April Blues, until fall brings back the dark nights and northern lights. © Ulrike Haug, more images can be viewed at www.AlaskaAurora.com


The Green Range

Submitted by: Ulrike Haug at Tue Oct 15 06:30:01 2002 UTC

Following a spectacular evening twilight, the aurora soon followed and graced the starry sky. At some stage the auroras got so intense that the mountain range reflected the green color of the lights on 4. October 2002. Photo ©Ulrike Haug, more at www.AlaskaAurora.com


Evening Twilight

Submitted by: Ulrike Haug at Tue Oct 15 06:26:01 2002 UTC

Church and Aurora

Submitted by: Ulrike Haug at Tue Oct 15 04:09:01 2002 UTC

It was after midnight and certainly in the ghostly hours as I took this photo of the Russian church with a faint glow of the aurora behind it. Ninilchik, Alaska, 7. October 2002. You can contact me at info@alaskaaurora.com or look at my web site www.AlaskaAurora.com for more images. © Ulrike Haug


Lenticular Clouds

Submitted by: Ulrike Haug at Fri Sep 20 02:11:01 2002 UTC

Late afternoon in October on the drive to Haines, Alaska, I saw these clouds in the last light of the sun. I had never seen such clouds before and was drawn by the dynamics of them, forming a layer of pancakes. © Ulrike Haug, http://www.AlaskaAurora.com
