Fairbanks is considered one of the best places for an Aurora Viewing experience!
Come and watch the Aurora Borealis with us on the top of the Murphy Dome, Chena Lakes Recreation Area or in a historic Lodge, secreted away in the hills 40 minutes north of the city lights, on the Cleary Summit. Entrance fee to the Lodge is not included in our price.
Aurora Borealis, sometimes referred to as polar lights, northern lights, or southern lights, is a natural light display in the Earth's sky, predominantly seen in the high-latitude regions. Auroras are the result of disturbances in the magnetosphere caused by solar wind.
The Kp-index is the global geomagnetic activity index that is based on 3-hour measurements from ground-based magnetometers around the world. The Kp-index ranges from 0 to 9 where a value of 0 means very little geomagnetic activity and a value of 9 means extreme geomagnetic activity.
