I very much appreciate the comments made by Frey on my article and agree with his point that emissions from molecular oxygen are better candidates for the detection of life on any extraterrestrial planet.

Indeed, it would be great if auroral science could contribute to the science of searching for extraterrestrial life. I propose that researchers interested in this endeavor form a discussion group.
