Paper Abstract

The aurora is a beautiful night sky optical phenomenon that is readily seen at high-latitude locations, but with more effort can also be seen and enjoyed at mid-latitude locations. Guidelines for when and where to look are presented, along with a rich array of photographic examples of mid-latitude auroras exhibiting all the usual range of green, red, and purple colors.
