There have not been any great sightings reported in New England since the first week of last October and when it did happen that week, northern New England saw a few nights of great light shows that were put on courtesy of the northern lights.
Watching this celestial phenomenon is truly a magnificent sight and a photographers dream. If you are planning a trip to see the aurora there are a few things that you must consider.
The first is the timing and then be ready for the word to travel. The next is location, head north and head rural. With clear skies in the forecast for tonight and a cloudy forecast for tomorrow, be on the lookout if you are up after midnight.
There should be no interference from city lights. Light pollution is the light that bleeds into the night sky, even if you can't see the "glow" of a nearby plaza; it’s there and will reduce images in the night sky. And last but not least is weather: will it be clear? If you have all those pieces going for you, grab the camera, tripod and “go for it”
There are a few good web sites available that I follow this stuff with and have added the links to below.
