Thanks for alerting us and sharing the info about this display, Chris.
Your remarks about the time of fading would partially explain why I 
didn't see much from my north-facing balcony here in Fountain Hills, 
somewhat later in the evening.  (Not to mention all the holiday lights 
this time of year.....)

I missed the big display a couple of years ago in similar fashion.  My 
Canadian friend, Hugh Grant and I were observing with his 12 inch LX200 
in his backyard observatory (in NW Fountain Hills), went inside for a 
break, and when we came out and I pulled out of his north-facing 
driveway about 1-1/2 hours later, whatever display we >might< have seen 
was all over.....
