In Canada, I get to see them fairly often enough where I'm located. Sometimes the naked eye won't really see much other than a faint glow, something to keep in mind when looking for them. But cameras can capture some amazing views. The last time my Dad and I were out shooting, we had captured an aurora by accident. These were taken in March of last year.

Yes i know you can, you bastards!

I've only seem them once, in late 1989 during a major flare. I even remember the episode of STNG that aired that week: "Booby Trap"
