Opinions, please: Best focal length for auroras?

I anticipate making a trip to Iceland next year to, among other subjects, shoot the aurora.  I will be taking my 5Div, 5DSr, 24-70/4L, 70-200/4L IS, & a TC 1.4 ii.

For night shooting I can choose from a Laowa 12/2.8 and Rokinons 20/1.8, 24/1.4, & 35/1.4.  In the interests of keeping my pack as light as possible, I want to limit my prime wide choices to just two lenses.  The question is, which two?

Opinions, please.
