    Here's something ironic, I live in Alaska and I will not see them, no matter how bright they are. We're still getting 18ish hours of sunlight, and the other 6ish hours are closer to twilight. Winter is our best aurora time, can't ever see them in the Summer.

    I've always been curious, when and for how long do you guys have normal day/night?

    It depends where you are in Alaska, it's a HUGE state. I live fairly far south, and even at the equinox, we still have sunrise and sunset. Where I live, at the equinox, we get around 19 hours of sunlight, and 5 hours of night time. I lived in Fairbanks for a year (much further North) and it was closer to around 22-23 hours of daylight to 1-2 hours of night. If you go all the way north (Barrow, or Prudhoe Bay, where the oil is) there are periods where the sun doesn't set or doesn't rise. I spent a couple days in Prudhoe bay in the Summer of 1998 and took a picture of the sun at 1:00am. One of the weirdest things I'd ever seen.

    Let's just say that I'm glad it's getting darker at night. Can be tough to get to sleep.
