some times you can, last night you should have been able to I think. If you can get far enough out away from all the light pollution of the more populated states.

Oh wow...never new that....thanks for those explanation everyone. I have lived in Wisconsin but really this is the first time ever hearing about northern light...
So I'm assuming northern light is aurora that's seen further away from polar region?
