                                Sharon and David Gillespie traveled to Alaska in February to see the aurora borealis. It was generally overcast, but the sky cleared one night and it was “breathtaking, unbelievable and a chance of a lifetime,” Sharon said. She took this photo of the aurora over the entrance to the Chena Hot Springs Resort, northeast of Fairbanks.
