Lynne Zeman, but 2 years after I posted this I realize the light and sound travel at vastly different speeds. I am surprised/embarrassed at my previous post.....may have had a couple that night...

I’ve heard the aurora but it was in a remote north community with no vehicles. Love the northern lights!

Odd that the sun's light takes around 8 minutes to reach the earth but the ionic clouds take 18 hours to reach the earth.

The aurora has a smell as well as sound. Go to Yellowknife and see them. They are a must see.
