Do the northern lights come once a year?

No. It is down to activity on the Sun, which is unpredictable. When there is unusual activity on the surface of the sun that is seen by astronomers, they can predict that the Northern Lights will be visible in a few days after that. That can happen at any time. There is no pattern in terms of when it can happen. Most of the time the required activity is not happening on the sun, so the Northern Lights don't appear at all.

What day is the northern lights in 2011?

There are no set dates. They can happen at any time. So for any given year you cannot say what dates it will be possible to see the Northern Lights. They are caused by unusual activity on the Sun and that activity is completely unpredictable. When astronomers do see it, they can then predict that the Northern Lights will be seen in the coming days. So it is only just a few days before they happen that it is possible to predict them.

Does the suns light have anything to do with the northern lights?

Yes, most definetly. The higher sunspot activety on the sun, the more northern lights. The ions that gives energy to the gas molecules in the atmosphere, which again produce northern lights comes with the sun waves (radiation) from the sun. the next sunspot high OS expected to be in 2013, so this will be a excellent year to see northern lights.
