  • About 5 years ago you could see it really well in MN. It's really pretty. I'm sure it's even more amazing in Alaska.

  • I saw it once, I was young, I dont even remember which state I lived in, either in Ohio, or Wisconsin. but I asked why the rainbow came out at night, and my daddy told me what it was!
    it was a great learning experience, and the sight of it, ill never forget!

  • Yep, a few times.  It is amazing.  My father has seen it up in the Yukon and he says it crackles.

  • Many, many times. It's truly beautiful and something you need to experience first hand. It's best if you can be out in the country, no street lights, no noise, just this wonder of nature. Amazing.
