Aurora Borealis Summer of j2012

My daughter wants to visit Alaska this summer (during her junior year in college) to see the Aurora Borealis. What is the best time to see it and which town is the best to see it from?

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Not summer . . . late August is probably the earliest possible time, and the further north you can go, the better. That said, if it is dark enough at night and the solar activity strong enough, you can see the northern lights in Anchorage and points south.
