Northern Lights

It appears that we may have some clear nights to enjoy aurora borealis. It is no surprise that aurora are showing up now. A solar wind stream hit Earth in mid-March, sparking a geomagnetic storm over the northern part of our continent. Plus, as we enter the spring Equinox, history tells us this is one of the best times of the year to view aurora.

Here are a couple of websites that may help:

For those in the Park, one of the better places to view the lights is on the dock in front of the Warden compound. It gives a clear view of the sky, and doesn't have as much light as the townsite. The Marquis hole is also great if you wander over to the lake shore. Some of the old native sights up on the prairie by Red Rock should also be good.

all the north facing stuff is in tremendous shape. The compound gullies are looking thin, but the left still seems fine. I don't know about qd and experts, but I would imagine they are out. You could always try some of those mixed lines at drywood that need put up.
