Elaine I’ve heard them as well. It’s a soft humming sound.

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.

They are stunning. Many nights I have enjoyed the show, even stopping on a very deserted highway one time to simply look and marvel.
