A brilliant, slow-moving meteor drops through the glow of the aurora borealis in the northern sky near midnight Tuesday above the Blue Grouse restaurant in Nikiski. The northern lights have been active this week in the aftermath of a major storm on the sun. Visit the University of Alaska’s Geophysical Institute on the Web at http://www.gi.alaska.edu/AuroraForecast/ for current aurora forecasts.
