King5 had a headline saying these should be visible tonight - 11/20.

Is there a specific time of night to see these, like how the Perseids are at their highest rate around 1 am, or are they usually visible as soon as it gets dark?

Thanks!

Over been looking in more detail at the predictions and we only have a faint chance, but still it's worth trying.

Well, I didn't see any auroras last night, but I did get this:


I tried layering a fully starry image into it from later in the night, but there was a reddish orange glow that apparently I'm not smart enough to figure out how to get rid of.  I tried desaturating the layer, but no dice.

Nice images. I had looked at the NASA Space weather site and the forecast was for a "K" level of 4-5. Typically, to see the Aurora here it has to get up to a level of 6, or better 7. So, I am not surprised you didn't see an Aurora. Perhaps there was one faintly viable on the Northern horizon if viewed from up high.
