    Hi Teri,

    Yes, aurora have been seen on other planets besides Jupiter and Earth. Aurora have also been observed on Saturn. You can see some pictures of aurora on Saturn from the Hubble Space Telescope here:

    Aurora have also been seen on Neptune and Uranus, but they are difficult to detect.
