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.

The electricians are hard at work up at Sirius Sled Dogs this week and they'll be resolving the power issues that have been effecting the outages of the webcam. We'll have some downtime during the days while that's going on but once they system has been resolved we should see a much happier webcam and with a new solar array in place, most if not all the power running the system will come from the same star that provides our Northern Lights shows. :-)
