ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - High aurora forecast and clear skies give Alaskans another opportunity to see a show Monday. According to the University of Alaska Fairbanks' Geophysical Institute's Aurora Forecast, Monday night's forecast is a 5 out of 9, even higher than Sunday night's forecast, which was a 4, when Alaskans all over braved the cold, and for some, stayed up late to capture the northern lights on camera.

The Anchorage area is forecasted to have clear skies Monday night and mostly clear skies on Tuesday.
Tuesday night's forecast is a 4, with lights overhead from Barrow to Anchorage and Juneau, and on the horizon from King Salmon, Kodiak and Prince Rupert.
