City Lights meet Northern Lights

Tonight I saw northern lights for the first time in my life. Red in Twitter that it's been all around Latvia (and whole Northern Europe) this evening - so took a car and we got to Vecāķi beach, northernmost area in Riga, the place where one can escape light pollution of the city. As you see in first photo, city lights are very strong even in this distant area of Riga - they're to the left side, and aurora borealis stays on the opposite, right side. In case if you think northern lights really looked like in these photos I can assure you - it didn't. In reality it all looked much less colorful, actually it was just white/grey but already in photo camera screen it showed mostly green color - I don't know why. And I can't figure out now - does anyone actually have seen colorful aurora borealis in life, or is it all those colors only the effect of photography? Anyone knows about this?
