It’s All In The Timing

One of the largest solar events of the last 12 months arrived just as a huge weather system pulled a blanket of heavy overcast and snow over most of southcentral Alaska and the interior. Perfect timing.

I can only hope that the displays will last til the next weather window.

Given the circumstances of the solar flare, the displays should be quite spectacular and driven further south than normal.

The solar sunspot 11 year cycle is due to peak in 2013. I have heard rumors of a “double peak” for this cycle. We shall see.

Good luck and good shooting.
