Delightful, remember watching a lot of these when younger in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. We lived on the edge of the city with a lot fewer lights than there is now and we always were entertained by these lively light shows at night when these came our way. Still see some now although I no longer live in Ottawa.
Lovely video and sound, especially the thunder and the Spring Peeper frog calls. I just it on Facebook so others could also see it.

I hope people were able to see these in real life. I used to live in the north and used to see them quite often, either white or green, usually. When you see them in real life you just stare at the sky in awe, and you don't even notice the cold, you just can't help watching it shift across the sky, like a curtain blowing in the breeze...

what a wonder!
did you know (well i recently read, so it must be true) that a rainbow's existence depends on a viewer - no viewer, no rainbow. apparently it has something to do with the eye receiving the prismatic information. wonder if the same holds true for the aurora? makes you think...
