That is one thing I miss about not living in the Mid-West, as a kid we had lots of beautiful displays in Southern Wisconsin. Being many miles away from cities and neighbors with no lights, nights were very dark.

Had lots of long distance VHF radio communications as well during high sun spot cycle times.

I don't know why we did not see them. I stayed up past midnight and was up at 4:30 am again (to see daylight creeping up) and No I was not in TN, actually New York Mills, just 1 hr from Fargo ND. Maybe too many street lights around. Oh well.

Aurora result from particles hitting the Earth's atmosphere.

The most dramatic displays occur after the Sun emits a coronal mass ejection (CME); when those particles hit the atmosphere, sometimes the aurora can be seen much farther south than "usual".

Check occasionally with Space.com for info.

Note that cities' light pollution will obscure the aurora, so be prepared to venture north, out of the city.
