Every few years I get a chance to see them, either from Sun Prairie, Madison, Green Bay, or out on Lake Michigan. But the coolest display I ever saw was while camping with my family in the Bond Falls Recreation Area in the UP of Michigan.

The display literally took up the north half of the sky, and it shimmered in greens, oranges, yellows, and whites. My Mom, my Dad, my brother Andy, and I sat on the beach watching them. While it was happening it occurred to me that I would probably never see such a display again. I think it was 1990 or 1991, and I haven't seen anything like it since.
