In Fairbanks, even when you can’t get out into the real ‘dark skies’ of Alaska (for instance, last night I had to work :|) you can still enjoy the Aurora. Although I would prefer to shoot the aurora in pure darkness, the effect of moving cars and the moon tracing across the solar panels located near Cold Climate Housing Research Center is actually pretty cool! This footage was shot just down the road from where I live at the UAF Sustainable Village. This footage was shot over the University of Alaska Fairbanks on 11/06 – 11/07/2014. I hope you enjoy!

Ian, the juxtaposition of mystical sky and mundane, earthly lights, traffic and buildings is creative and beautiful.
Yeah! Those ‘mundane’ lights are hard on the eyes compared to the lights overhead! 🙂
