At numerous airports across Canada there are automated cameras installed for aviation safety. When a bright display of NLC shows up, it is possible to see the spectacle with these cameras! On the night of Jul 3/4 a brilliant NLC display was positioned over the Northwest Territories. The north-facing camera at Slave Lake, Alberta caught the display at 0840, 0850, and 0900 UT (0240, 0250, and 0300 local time). See how the NLC field drifts to the west over the 20-minute period. Farther west of the display, the east-facing camera at Ft. Liard also detected the display, at 0840 UT (2nd image, NLC are the white clouds in the middle of the frame).

In our NLC CAN AM surveillance network, one of the longest-participating parties has been another station, La Ronge, Saskatchewan, where the staff there have been doing visual monitoring since the network began in 1988. South of La Ronge, the Prince Albert station came on board in 1997.
