  • Welcome to the chase!

    This page provides easy access to what we are seeing while we are out as long as we have a data connection. The Twitch stream at the top allows for chat (a Twitch account is required) and the image at the bottom is the most recent image uploaded to the site from the All-Sky camera (which should be on top of the vehicle's roof). You can also mention the site in tweets (@amazingwx) if you don't want to create a Twitch account. As long as we have a data connection, I will interact the best I can (while still watching/waiting for Lady Aurora, of course)!

    A word of caution: I can do absolutely nothing about the video lighting on the GoPro. I looked; it's not possible to change right now. So, I will apologize for the dark conditions on the live feed, but we hope that the northern lights, once initiated, will show up. The faint clouds, I assume, will not. We will know more once we actually get to test it out...LIVE!

    *Note: Still looking for a viable live stream option; potentially, my iPhone or iPad.
