Well folks, the bitter cold sweeping across the state is also bringing mostly clear skies. With that, the sun is sending rays of fun our direction... expect some 'light's on the 30th and/or 31st.
Those of you around Fairbanks should have some good shows, if you can find a way to keep yourself and your batteries warm.
Coronal holes are places in the sun's atmosphere where the sun's magnetic field opens up and allows the solar wind to escape. A stream of solar wind flowing from this coronal hole should reach Earth on Dec. 30th or 31st. The impact could light up the Arctic Circle, punctuating the year with aurora borealis.
