Hal838[/align:iy2459e6] Well I’m not sure of the reason, but last winter was a great one for auroras. Most of the times that Clark and I went on our trips we had auroras. The problem with pics is that right now it is daylight 24 hours a day so the aurora’s aren’t visible. I managed a few last winter but at 30 to 40 below zero my camera lens often iced up from my breath leaving fuzzy photos. Next year I’ll try to do better. I’m off the ice now until the end of January so unless someone there has photo’s to post, there won’t be any until I get back.
enjoy the winter in the northern hemisphere, Lorie and I leave New Zealand tomorrow for six weeks of basking on a beach in Australia to warm up before we return to the ice.
