The Alaska Aurora Cam is a Canon 6D DSLR with a Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 and is mounted in a Harbortronics weatherproof housing.
As this has been a crowd funded effort, images from the webcam only are available for your use. Images may be shared and used but we do ask that you leave the watermark in tact and include a link back to www.AlaskaAuroraCam.com Thank you to all who have supported this camera and kept it going! The image feed may not be used on any other website.
For a much more in depth look at real-time and long term Space weather conditions we highly recommend a visit to SOLARHAM. They are our go-to source for Aurora forcasting.
Long term forecast information will be updated around 2:00 PM Alaska Time when possible

I only got a chance to see last night's recorded live broadcast in part, but that was AMAZING! I watched one-third with my family and it was so much fun to share with them what the Aurora Borealis is like in real life! Thank you for teaching me so much about the aurora in March when I was on the Musher's Cabin Tour at Sirius Sled Dogs. Loved meeting all the dogs, and seeing in person the beautiful hillside where the faithful webcams have lived! I am not an aurora addict and will never be the same again!! Getting to watch the Live Broadcast at SSD from last night felt like coming home. :)

Forgot to ask if you will keep up all informed of any future live streams.

Beautiful displays both nights! I caught the first one live (I was up really late) and I watched the second one in the recorded form. I am in southern Wisconsin and we don't see the lights much down here. If they are out at all the light pollution destroys any chance I have of seeing them so I appreciate viewing your feeds. I really appreciate your people working with the young boy who was gradually losing his vision. He will have a memory to store in his brain that will last longer than his vision will. God bless.

I lived in Fairbanks last summer and became totally fascinated with the Aurora. I got to see some before I left in Sept. I watch your AuroraCam every day. I am back in Utah and with the 2 hr. time difference it is too late to watch the live feed. So I appreciate you posting it for us to watch. It is beautiful.

Wish I could watch every night, but by that time it's 2-3am here in Illinois. Thanks for everything you do, though!
