I wonder if I'll be seeing them here in Shandong once the earth rotates a little more. I'm sitting just about on the same latitude line as Alabama :)

Not here, but I'm towards the east coast with all that light pollution. It's also a bit cloudy this evening so that pretty much seals the deal.

I don't feel too bad about it. I've seen and photographed the aurora on a trip to Alaska. It would still be nice to see them from the warmth of my house though.

I'm in the East-coast light pollution situation myself, but I just thought I'd contribute the following link for those that might be interested in such things:
