    These are beautiful! I tried to find out how to look for them while I was at Grand Forks, but, alas! I was unable to.

    Thank you! There is a website called softservenews.com that give updates on the likely hood, but only for about an hour or so in advance. Then it depends on where you are at for cloud cover, city lighting, etc.
