Northern Lights in daylight??

Guest Ed Guest

Hi all,

I was just flying north from Atuu, Alaska (ATU), toward Nome, Alaska (PAOM) and I saw the Aurora Borealis during daylight hours. Never seen that before; I've seen the Aurora before, so I know what it looks like in in FS09, and I'm sure that's what it was.

I was flying at 18,000 feet in a KingAir at about noon local time on January 1st, 2006. I was within a few hundred miles of Nome, so I was pretty far north, but not up to the Arctic Circle yet. The sun was just barely above the horizon, but the sky was light and the sea below was well illuminated. But there was the Northern Lights, in all its glory. I took a screenshoot, but I forgot to save it before restarting the computer. Embarassed

i flew about 60-70 miles straight north from Nome airport at 2:45 PM and the sun was rising but no Northern Lights.

Actually, I was south of Nome at the time, flying north, and it only lasted a few minutes.

Or else I just dreamed it. 😉
