Aurora over Mt. Dillon, Brooks Range, Alaska #2005

Description

Aurora over Mt. Dillon, Brooks Range, Alaska. Mt. Dillon, or Dillon Mountain is a prominent 4,820-foot (1,469 meter) mountain summit located in the Philip Smith Mountains of the Brooks Range. Named for John Thomas Dillon (1947-1987), former geologist with the Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys who spent 10 years mapping the geology of the southern Brooks Range mineral belt. Dillon is located near where the Bettles and Dietrich Rivers merge to form Middle Fork Koyukuk River. The bright multi-hued aurora colors the braided Dietrich River adding a vivid pulse to the night sky. September is an ideal month to view the aurora in Alaska at a time just before the harsh arctic winter sets in.
