Quick Note: Aurora Borealis (Live)

March 16, 2012

Today’s Quick Note is about northern lights. The Canadian Space Agency has set up a project called AuroraMax Live, which captures the night sky, complete with aurora, on a web cam. How cool is that?

The picture is pretty simple, and it streams at a very slow fps rate, but it clearly and distinctly shows the aurora. I really like this cam site, and encourage you to take a look. For those of you who are interested, the camera is located somewhere called Yellowknife, in the Northern Territories. The camera is only online at night. I’ve checked in the last couple of nights, and my kids thought it was cool, too.
