“Blink of an Eye”

© October 25th, 2016



Temperatures plunge as ice fog forms above the cliffs from the open waters of the Copper River below, while fingers climb into the distant forests of the vast expanse of the great Copper River Basin.  A rare and powerful aurora displays a “nitrogen fringe” with a pink-orange mix, playing along the structure like piano keys, as it skirts the edge of space.  The majestic volcanic peaks of the Wrangell-Saint Elias are silhouetted 25-50 miles distant, rising 12,000 to over 16,000 feet high. The stars of Orion the Hunter glitter amid the trees as they rise higher in the east.  The stunning scene lasted mere seconds before depleting its energy and vanishing hundreds of miles over the horizon
