The lights in the sky over Sitka on Sunday evening (8-11-13) weren’t all meteors. Photographer Dan Evans summited Arrowhead Peak to take in the fantastic view, and his headlamp was seen from town — as an inadvertant distress signal. At least five people called the Police Department to report the mysterious light. Once he realized some people were flashing lights back at him, he asked his wife to notify authorities that all was well. The only person he intended to signal was a young neighbor, Dillon.
