Is it possible to hear the Northern Lights ?

I was convinced I heard the Northern Lights when I saw them in Banff a number of years ago, but then persuaded myself that the sounds had to be something else. There was a Finnish study that claimed to have captured their sound (video is below). I did not hear anything like what's in the video; the sounds I heard were more like the rustling silk sounds described in the article.

Maybe it make a sound or maybe our brain imagine a sound from what our eyes see. If a machine can record it it's all good but faint ambient sound still can occur and be made from a different sources than the Northern lights...

That's hard and recording it need to be done numerous times to have a conclusion. Never heard it, if it's faint, just a bit of wind and it could be impossible to distinguish.

I live in Northern Canada and I can say I have experienced this phenomenon first hand. The sound is very similar to how they describe it. It�s kind of a crackling/ humming sound. I have seen northern lights more times than I can count but you only hear them if they a particularly vibrant or strong.
