Auroras are notoriously difficult to predict. So what your looking for is a thick aurora band with some areas of light yellow, orange or, better yet, RED on this map as opposed to just a thin (or transparent) band with only dark green.
The size of a visible Aurora will be bigger than what is shown on this map, because the map gives the overhead location of the Aurora. The area of a visible aurora is greater because it can be seen at spots other than 90 degrees directly up (straight above your head). The Aurora might be visible at 45 degrees, 30 degrees or even lower on the horizon depending on its brightness
