I missed them too!
A friend was driving to Dallas from Omaha and saw them as he was driving through Kansas. He said it was the most incredible thing he has ever seen in the sky.

you shoulda seen em from up north last night, pretty cool. Thought it was a cloud bank until I noticed it was green and moving

they're SUPER SUPER cool from the air at night, get above the haze layer and city lights and they're really brilliant

We had them one night a few years ago down her in NE Louisiana.
Of course I missed it.

Damn I missed them too! I have only seen them once, but that was from a 747 at 40,000 ft over Canada so it was a really, really good view. Would liked to have seen them again last night though.

I've seen some beautiful northern lights before, but on Monday I saw the best ever. I was driving to Best Buy
and was crossing a river when they caught my eye and I had to pull over. There were red streaks in the sky! I've seen the green and purple ones before, but the sky was red! It was really incredible. There was a bright orange moon that night, so perhaps that had something to do with it. (I've never heard of red northern lights before)
I sure wish I'd had a camera with me that night. Ah well...just wanted to share.

I saw them once in Saskatchewan in the middle of the night on my bands first X-country tour. I had to wake everyone up and we pulled over and watched them in the freezing cold for half an hour. It was truly awesome.

The lights were great up north here, too. But we get them very frequently. It's great to have them show up so far south once in a while!
Here is a photo of my cabin with northern lights taken last winter (no CGI). These lights were green with deep purplish-red streaks, but the red doesn't come through too well on this photo.

Janna,
That is an awesome pic! I've seen the lights as well, but never that brilliant or animated. They truly are a gift of nature, better than any film I've ever seen.

Wow Janna, that looks like something straight out of the X-files... Awesome pic. On like Day 2 of the Alaska Ride, Ev woke me up at 2am and I kind of groggaly crept out of my warm sleeping bag ready to bash her head in until I remembered that I told her to wake me up if she saw them. So I relented and crawled out of my warm tent with just my glasses which I can hardly see anything with them anyway and saw the lights. They weren't as green as your pic, but they were pretty cool. And then I got real cold and crawled back into my warm tent.

...and for some reason, your cabin looks like a carved pumpkin!!
