Spent 7 years in SE Alaska and never saw the lights once. Sorry.

Saw an amazing display in Marysville Washington a long time ago. I was an adventurous kid out for a walk in the middle of the night.

Here's a shot taken by a friend near Thorne Bay.

The tiny light in the lower right is a nav aid at the entrance to Thorne Bay.

Sorry, I don't have any pics to share, but I do have some recollections. We lived in AK for four years while in the USAF. On many night flights I was able to see the lights from well above any cloud cover or haze.

The most brilliant display I ever saw was on the way back from Greenland in a C130 somewhere over northern Canada in the dead of winter. The lights were bright enough that they lit up the cockpit. We watched them for over an hour and saw the most brilliant display ever.

I have seen them many times as well! I fly to Anchorage a lot and have seen them then. I also used to do a lot of flying in the Great Lakes Region and saw them many times up there. It would take a good camera/lens to get a good pic!
