FAIRBANKS - It’s dark at night now. And that means our friend the aurora is back, delighting us regularly with its dancing and prancing.

It also means that the many talented photographers among our readers have their lenses pointed skyward again. And that means they’ll be sharing their photographs with the rest of us, as you can see already on this page.

Photographing the aurora takes skill, patience and, later in the season, some good cold-weather clothing and a mug of something warm to drink. But the results can be worth the effort.
