Do you know Alaska Is?

When I was a little girl, this music was put with photographs of Alaska's beauty. It was set to this music on TV. The opening image was a muscaria mushroom. If you know Alaska like I did, you'll know.

If not, never mind, some of my favourite people have never seen snow.

I do soundtrack puzzles, so if you search soundtrack in the coming days, I will be archiving my music puzzles, but give me a few days. It's fun to set puzzles to music, and more fun to solve them.

If you know Alaska Is, tell me!

:( that's a drag.

Keep eyes peeled over the months for Venus (at its brightest it puts Jupe to shame) and in a year or so we are due to get close to Mars at night, and it can get big and bright.

I use to see who's what where. Might help you find a few things even in the clutter (like Sirius maybe?)


Mazy: I live SE of Houston. TX. Even if the lat. were not a problem, our sky is so polluted with wasted energy that all there is on a clear night is Jupiter, maybe. 300 miles west in the hill country west of Austin-San Antonio the stars were viisible. My wife just got invited to an all expenses paid trip to the Bahamas in July. Maybe she will see some night sky there and can tell me about it.


I have a good forecast tool online if you want it. Not sure where you live now but they can be seen much farther south than people think, under the right conditions. not spectacular displays, but enough to see them.


My wife had never seen the Aurora even though she worked for a time in Norway (Stavanger). So a few years ago she and her granddaughter went to north Iceland (away from city lights) and got to see them as well as bathing in geothermal pools. I vaguely remember as a child in Minnesota seeing them on the horizon.


@jec477 not sure what the diff is between the geom and the m pole... but as you say the Long is pretty squoze together. Bear in mind that 1000mi is not that far, when what you are looking at is 50 - 100mi up. Rayed aurora (the kind you are talking about) can be several hundred miles up.


Mazy: accordin to google. mag north was at about 78 N by 110 W in 1956. I was 'bout 65N by 145W when I saw the Aurora. Longitude lines are pretty squoze together up there but 13 degrees of lat. is 1000 mi or so. So memory is not so precise and mebbe I wasn't looking straight up (can't come close to that these days). What's the difference between magnetic pole and geomagnetic pole?


Not noisy as in fireworks.


Goodness, jec, then you were very far in the north. For mag to have been close, you'd have had to be seeing a magnetic "North" that was almost East. And surely in Canada.

To have that dance inside your eyes - my goodness! I experienced a light show in a fireworks display, where the explosion of light seemed to come from inside my head. I was on a boat and close enough to the barge with the fireworks to see lights! explode! in my vision!

Sort of, I imagine, like seeing the curtain, as you say, converge and 360.



Courtesy of US army, I got to spend a winter in the interior of the Alaskan Territory (1956) Magnetic pole must have near there then because the curtain was 360 deg. and converged overhead. Inconceivable!


Thank you Robin, hugs back. Hugs and love.

I didn't link it, did I? there's no easy way to do it.


I don't know it yet, but probably will later. So far, I love your taste in music. Still listening to The Verve. You've been quiet lately. It's good to see you back. :)))
