It was a colourful St Patrick's day, not just green.
I spent 2 weeks in Fairbanks as I was hoping to get at least 1 week of good weather.
First week was clear with good Aurora, the second week was overcast with poor Aurora.
I am happy with what I saw, especially travelling all the way from Australia.
Also on the 17th, or morning of the 18th, the Aurra Australis was visible from Tasmania, 45min flight from where I live. This is quite rare though.
