Our Anchorage Market summer gig is a wrap and my wife Shay & I want to thank everyone for the wonderful support. The truck camper is stocked, camera gear locked & loaded, and we are excited to explore the outer reaches of Alaska. Autumn comes early and is relatively fleeting in the Great Land, so it’s time to rock it… rocket to the stars!
Looking for auroras? We have compiled a few pages to help with aurora forecasting: Northern Lights Forecast, Northern Lights Tonight and Aurora Links & Webcams. To stay connected with our latest photos & experiences, we invite you to visit facebook/AuroraHunter.
Keep One Eye on the Sky ~ Cheers!

Auroras dance over my head in Anchorage, Alaska on September 2, 2023 at 12:37 am. I saw these despite the city lights on a bright moonlit night. If it’s clear & dark nothing can stop a big aurora show, especially when they’re right on top of you.

Each of these movies are a great way to experience the awe-inspiring auroras in motion through Todd's extensive time-lapse footage. Together, they provide an in-depth experience into real life aurora hunting and were many years in the making. Both visual journeys are enhanced with science and music that ranges from space-age acoustic sensations to aurora rock! 3-Movie Bundle
Here's a graph illustrating when in the solar cycle I've taken some of my favorite shots. The key thing to remember is that auroras occur throughout the cycle from Solar Max to Solar Min. They're just not quite as common during the lows in the cycle. More on the Solar Cycle
We are absolutely smitten with Metal Prints. The results of having my aurora & scenic shots printed on aluminum have been WOW-With Out Words! The inks are dye-infused onto a specially-coated aluminum sheet and sealed with a gemlike UV coating that is both water and scratch resistant. We have commonly heard people say, "It's like looking through a window"...."Are these backlit?"...."They look so 3D." And the archival quality is out of this world (think century plus). This is a technological breakthrough and the results are in HIGH DEF!
