SKYGLOW: HAARP Borealis #MusicMonday

Checkout this epic music video showing off an amazing Alaskan night sky:

SKYGLOWPROJECT.COM: HAARP BOREALIS from Harun Mehmedinovic on Vimeo.

In the plains of remote eastern Alaska lies H.A.A.R.P. (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program), an Ionoshphere research facility built in the early 1990s through joint effort from U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), and D.A.R.P.A. (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency). In 2015, the site for fully handed over to UAF.

In 2019, SKYGLOW became one of the first civilian entities to be allowed to conduct a full night photography shoot of the magnificent Class 1 quality night skies over H.A.A.R.P. and this video and the rare footage in it is the result of that effort. As chance would have it, aurora borealis rolled in halfway in the night, providing a spectacular northern lights show as a backdrop. Just like the stars, aurora borealis visibility is heavily impacted by light pollution, so H.A.A.R.P.’s pristine night skies were critical to what is depicted in the footage.
