I see them right where I am. Come to Alberta!! I cannot count the number of times I've seen the northern lights.

Central Alberta doesn't have the best displays, but they are fairly regular in the fall and spring. Northern Alberta (in the Grande Prairie area) has much brighter and more colorful displays ... I lived there for 11 years and enjoyed them on a regular basis. Oh, on a quiet night in northern Alberta, you could also hear them "roar".

If you go to my website (signature line) and to Tours - Canada 2006: http://www.machka.net/short_tours/2006_PineLake.htm , I write about a tour to Pine Lake near here in September. The northern lights were out, as bright as that picture, and the coyotes were howling ... it was magical!!
