I have to admit that I have never actually seen an Aurora Borealis with my own eyes. Do they actually move fast enough to be seen with the naked eye (not as fast as the time-lapse video obviously, but at least as fast moving as clouds would be, where you can actually detect movement)?

Yes. They flicker and flutter all over the sky quite spectacularly.

It's got the wrong music for a rave. This is the music you need (warning: repetitive, may make your ears bleed)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ty0JSf1zCbA

My wife and I went on an Alaskan cruise with a land tour last September. We saw the northern lights on two evenings in Denali National Park. Absolutely breathtaking.

You can see the northern lights move around. They are quite cool to witness, and some times you can hear them.

I've seen many aurora borealis, but usually when I catch them they are green with one or two bands across the sky, often on the horizon or relatively weak (but still nice to look at). I recall one night during the spring/summer of the comet hale-bopp we had an amazing aurora display of deep green and purple and the purple would flush and pulsate through the green bands that were splayed out all across as far as the eye could see in all directions with bands merging and splitting and changing colour. It was a completely mind-blowing experience. We couldn't think of a better way to start the evening than just get baked and watch the crazy aurora with the comet in the backdrop. The fact we were right in the middle of a million person city with bad light pollution makes me wonder how nuts that display must have been in the rural areas. It seemed like it lasted a good hour or more, then we went drinking.

Wow, looks like we are really hauling ass around the galaxy in slo-mo.

/almost ok with this video being used as a check off the bucket list.
