Yes to that. One year, they were 3/4rds in the sky to the south and red and orange. It was actually very very creepy to see. I've never seen them cover up that much of the night sky or never have seen them that color before or ever again. Not uncommon to sit on the hill at night checking cows watching them dance across the sky. Very neat to see. I've seen videos from way up north where it's a tourism thing. Those videos are spectacular. They had clear roofed buildings so you could watch them and not get cold.

AURORA BOREALIS ARE also know as Northern lights. Very common here.
...Walk around in the dark with a flashlight during April while our cows are calving (checking cows at night)and you can admire them here.Some years much more than others. They are a thing of great natural beauty and mystery the same time.The presence of them is affected by a number of things such as how much moon light there is and cloud cover. Seems the colder it is the more they show up.Sometimes they are just colors in the horizens in the north and other times they appear to be pulsing and waveing colors of a greenish blue in the whole width of the northern horizion from east to west. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aurora
