Description:  Mountain tops as viewed from Knik River Road near Palmer, Alaska.    

Also know as the
Aurora Borealis, these lights are best viewed in the cold dark winter months in Alaska.   
The beautiful blaze of the
Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, begins when energetic electrically charged
particles accelerate along the magnetic field lines into the upper atmosphere, where they collide with gas
atoms, causing the atoms to give off light. The air lights up rather like what happens in a fluorescent light
tube.  The colors reflect gases, the most usual yellow-green color coming from oxygen. Red coloring is also
due to oxygen with a contribution from nitrogen and violet is due to nitrogen. The charged particles originate
from the sun, and it is the “weather” conditions on the sun that decide whether or not we will see the aurora.

The website address will not be printed on your print.  This print is treated with an ultra violent protective
coating.  It will be rolled and inserted into a mailing tube if ordering a glossy paper print, if ordering stretched
canvas this print will be boxed.   The print  will be mailed first class by the U.S. Postal Service and insured.
