There are definitely patrols along the northern parts of Norway where Aurora Borealis, or northern lights, is more frequent.
Aurora Borealis dispels its electrical charge at about five to ten times the typical altitude of a fighter jet, so it would not interfere with any weapon or targeting systems, it wouldn’t obstruct any potential targets and it would probably not interfere with their high frequency radio signals.
I’m not that sure about the radio signals, as Aurora Borealis is known to bounce radio signals at low altitude. But considering fighter jets don’t operate on those frequencies, and their general altitude is way above regular radio towers, it probably doesn’t pose a threat to communications either.
