While camping recently in Wells Gray Provincial Park, in Clearwater/Falls Creek campground (BC, Canada), I happened to glance up at the sky one of of my treks out of my tent. I have never seen the Northern Lights before, and it was a very surreal experience. I was in my pyjamas, and surrounded by trees, but able to see them nonetheless whilst battling the mosquitos and other bugs that decided to make a meal out of me.

Thank you for looking
EDIT: According to space.com, these particular Northern Lights were a result of an X-Class solar flare that "[triggered] a huge eruption of solar plasma, known as a coronal mass ejection or CME, which is expected to reach Earth at 1 a.m. EDT (0500 GMT) on Saturday (July 14).Young said that an early analysis suggests the coronal mass ejection sent a wave of plasma toward Earth at a speed of 3.1 million mph (5 million kph or about 1,400 km per second).
Because the solar flare erupted toward Earth, it sent a wave of charged particles toward our planet that could slightly amp up northern lights displays. It caused a strong radio blackout for some high-frequency communications systems, according to SWPC officials." -- Article source: [link]
