You absolutely would see them!
Best display I ever saw was in western Ontario near Dryden?
I swear you could hear them, making a sizzling/crackling sound.
Heavy, heavy reds and greens. Great sheets of them flowing across the sky. it was beautiful.
The skeeters were killers, though!
I’ve never had any pleasure to see other colours than green, but one time they were bright enough that I could read a newspaper by them.
Another time, the ends of the aurora connected to form a complete circle. As circular as ever changing Aurora lights can get anyway. :)
I go to a website called Aurora Watch to see when they might be strong enough to take a trip outside the cite.
