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

Thank you all! Sorry I've been out and not here. We'll hopefully have this camera working reliably soon again as well! :-)

Wish I could see what you see at night. Don't see the northern light's very often here in northwest lower Michigan.

We've isolated the cause of the camera outages and hope to have a solution soon. The issue occurs when the generator that keeps the power supplied to the house and cabin up at Sirius Sled Dogs is running. Due to some irregularities in the system, we are seeing voltage spikes and drop offs which are just enough to cause the camera to stop communicating with the server. This will be resolved by an electrician the 3rd week of Feb. In the meantime, the generator only runs during the day to charge batteries on the system for this off-the-grid home and so the camera will function normally at night. We will add a UPS/surge protector to the system to see if this helps until the electrician correct this. Please bare with us as we work through this to get the camera, but more importantly, the Sirius Sled Dogs folks back to normal.

We're having a battle with the webcam the last few days. No idea what the problem seems to be. Sometime it works for hours, sometimes it quites every 5 shots. We'll head up and try to troubleshoot. Please forgive any outages until we sort this out.
