Furthermore, I cannot recommend highly enough to anyone whom wishes to see the aurora for yourself--from experience I can highly suggest (unfortunately Auroral displays and also natural-radio phenomena are in a very-steep decline now due to declining solar-activity, downward into an upcoming minimum in 2018, although some report signs of the new Cycle 25 with new Sunspots occurring at high solar latitude already) the Aurora best appears most frequently during the *equinoctal* periods around September and April (due to the alignment of Earth's magnetic-field and the IPF).
Thus, late August through mid-September will definitely present the warmest (short sleeves/pants weather!) Summer Prairie-Beauty Canadian weather! Do head for Canada's High Plains/Boreal Forest region in late Summer. To be deep into the optimal locations under the auroral-oval for the most superb Aurora enjoyment, journey up to Thompson, Manitoba or Hay River, NWT (as I did in June 1996). Find an electrically-quiet location and enjoy the ELF show, too! SpM.
