    We get them here, but you can't see them in the city as well as you can out where I live.

    I love watching them.

    I only saw them once, when i was about 11 or 12, scared the hell out of me, thought aliens were landing or something. Keep in mind I was very young, lol.

    My dad, I miss him every day.

    Same here. I've seen some pretty spectacular meteor showers, but nothing at all like the Northern Lights.

    Upper Michigan is a good palce to see them, especially looking over Lake Superioir. Truly amazing.

    I've seen them several times growing up in Wisconsin, and also in Alaska. In Alaska, you also hear a whispering, chiming sound while they dance in the sky.

    I've never seen Northern Lights until I clicked on those links--thanks for posting them; if I had seen them in the sky without warning, I would have thought the world was ending! I wonder how often they get mistaken for UFOs.

    The Northern Lights are almost unreal in person. You can see them almost every night during the winter in northern MN.
    It's better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
