By the time it was dark enough in Alaska, much of the punch was gone. Also, the clouds started to roll in. I had almost given up when I saw a hole in the clouds. To my surprise, the entire Big Dipper was visible along with some aurora, just in this small hole. Taken just before midnight September 7, 2017 east of Delta Junction, Alaska.

Alaska has the best Northern Lights, just ask all of our local residents. We never tire of the beautiful Aurora Borealis. Photo Courtesy Debbie Omstead
