Aurora Borealis Reflections Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

The dark night sky over the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, USA is aglow in brilliant colors created by the Aurora borealis.

As the sky darkens above the Beaufort Sea/Arctic Ocean in Alaska, USA, the Aurora borealis becomes fully illuminated and spans across the sky over the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in green, yellow and purple hues. Reflections of the Aurora borealis are created across the surface of the water which highlights the small floating icebergs.

Stars twinkle across the sky as the Aurora borealis dance between them, a sight which is amazing especially from December to March when the nights are the longest and the sky is the darkest. These lights and reflections can sometimes be seen for hours at a time or can be as short as 10-15 minutes.

The farther away from the lights of the cities in Alaska one can be, the better the Aurora borealis will appear. Many of the Eskimo villages throughout Alaska are known to have legends making the Aurora borealis be either spirits playing ball in the sky with the skull of a walrus or flaming torches which are carried by the souls who have passed on and are guiding travelers to the afterlife.

The Aurora borealis differ from night to night and one never knows what the sky above the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, USA will bring.
