Just stepped out of my workshop to look up and there are two faint bands at the zenith in metro Detroit, but I'd have never noticed it without a heads up. Very faint but it definitely is an Aurora.

Cheers,

Glad I'm not crazy. Yeah, I'm setting up for some imaging later and was sort of studying the sky.

Thanks.
