There are numerous scientific endeavors funded by national governments and other interested organizations around the world, many of which have hundreds of persons in their employ. Of course there are some equally worthwhile projects out there bringing science to a broad audience, and the AuroraWebCam project has a staff of two bringing live broadcasts of the auroras from Alaska. The project is the brainchild of Troy Birdsall, a young man from Fairbanks, who is ably assisted by Stachu Stryzewski from Poland. From the homepage, visitors can view a live webcam broadcast from Ft. Aurora in Alaska from the hours of 4:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Alaska time). If visitors can't tune in that time, they may also elect to view archived videos of auroras which are also located on the site, or browse through one of the many photo galleries. Finally, the site also has a nice forum section where visitors can post questions or offer feedback to the team working on this compelling site.
