The walls of the Museum of the North stand out against the Alaska sky like bold white brush strokes on blue canvas. Visitors say the swooping exterior of the expanded University of Alaska museum reminds them of breaching whales or northern lights. The building taking shape on a Fairbanks hill stands out because it's more Sydney Opera House than the low-bid, big-box discount store that is typical Alaskan architecture.

There was a time when 600-pound Ice Age relics known as musk oxen roamed with mastodons and hairy mammoths across the northern plains of the continent. But they were intensely hunted for their longhaired hides, and the musk ox became extinct in Alaska. Their primary defensive posture was to encircle the most vulnerable members of the herd. With their tails in and their heads out, the powerful bulls were able to defend their young and weak against wolves and other predators.

A solar storm may cast colored lights - known as the Aurora Borealis or Northern lights - in the sky over parts of the northern Plains, the Great Lakes region and Northeast on Thursday and Friday, forecasters say. “It's a very rare occurrence,” Joe Kunches of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colo., told the Los Angeles Times. It may be only be visible for five or 10 minutes, most likely as far south as Colorado, Illinois and Iowa and potentially from Chicago, Boston, Cleveland, Seattle and Des Moines.  MORE: How to see the Northern lights The time, location and duration of an appearance is a calculated guess.

Timothy Treadwell, the avowed bear man of the Alaska wilderness, lived poor and little known for most of his 46 years despite a desire for the spotlight of celebrity. He claimed to have led a life of drugs, brawls and booze until, in the late 1980s, he found his way to the grizzlies, most recently in Katmai National Park and Preserve on the Alaska Peninsula about 300 miles southwest of Anchorage. His cause: to save them from hunters and poachers who apparently didn't exist.
