Blue Flame, Colour photograph (Giclée) by Shane Lamb. Alaskan night sky is dark from August to April. The Aurora is a natural light display caused by charged particles from the sun interacting with the earth's atmosphere. When these particles collide with oxygen, yellows and greens are produced, with nitrogen they produce reds, violets and rarely blues
Sunglasses at the ready! The warm weather is set to continue into August with rumours of it becoming the hottest August in the UK to date and, with so many great outdoors activities on, you won't find us complaining!
