The daylight has taken over and thus we won't see much of Lady Aurora's dance again until August. We hope to see you all then! Thanks for an amazing season and don't forget to book you tour using the tour link. Until then, please enjoy this highlights slideshow from the webcam's first season.
This camera overlooks Murphy Dome and is housed at the remote Sirius Sled Dogs Cabin in Fairbanks, Alaska. This cabin is off the grid and powered by the solar panels seen in the lower right portion of the image and in the dark months supplemented with a generator. The camera is connected online via cellular network. If you watch during the day you may catch a view of the dog teams and handlers. At night, keep an eye out for beautiful views of the Fairbanks night sky including Northern Lights. Scroll down for real-time data about the aurora. Should you happen to be visiting while there is no aurora on the webcam, you'll find a Daily Image Gallery at the bottom of the page which includes daily images from previous nights. If the image appears black, it's because we are clouded over and can't see the sky. If it appears to be daylight at night check the moon phase as a full moon looks like daylight to a night camera. You'll also find some fun behind the scenes images here. Don't forget to visit the folks at Aurora Borealis Notifications to get alerted when "the Lights are out!"
