Arctic Moon

This nearly full moon illuminated the wintery peaks of Alaska's Brooks Range, as the northern lights circled overhead. When the moon is this bright, it takes an exceptionally luminous aurora to shine through. This is one of only a few occasions on which I've managed to successfully capture the combination. LARGE ON BLACK More of my aurora images are HERE.
