Aurora Dog Over Alaska

It’s neat to see familiar shapes in the clouds, but how awesome would it be to witness a dog in the Aurora Borealis? Astrophotographer John Chumack caught this picture near Fairbanks, Alaska, last month. The leaping dog with his upright ears and curly tail just seems to belong there. Mouseover the image at Atronomy Picture of the Day to see labels for the various stars and constellations. -via Laughing Squid
