Looking for the Aurora

Evening Sky with a Crescent Moon, Jupiter and Orion
Well, I went looking for the Aurora last night and did not see what is described as a classical Aurora.  I did obtain some excellent pictures of the sunset, and of the night sky at Horseneck beach.

I did obtain one picture of some interesting cloud-like objects in the night sky, which did not have the deep green or red color that is associated with the Aurora, however, they did not look like the rest of the clouds that were around.  Was this the Aurora, maybe?  But it was an enjoyable evening out on the beach.
Is this the Aurora?
