I'm in the airport awaiting a flight to Alaska to see the sights and try out some science projects that only work when it's really
cold. Of course, at the top of my list of things to do is to watch and
photograph the aurora borealis. March is a perfect month to view the
lights in Alaska because the nights are still long and often clear and
for some reason, the aurora seems to do well close to the equinox. We're
also near the peak of the solar cycle, so chances are good I'll enjoy
the northern lights.
I'll be posting pictures of my adventures, so stay tuned!
