Default Aurora Australis last night was amazing

Here's some shot I took of the amazing Southern Lights last night in Dunedin, it was mind blowing to see them glowing so bright, the brightest for over a decade.

The mainly red shot is from my back garden here in Andersons Bay, Dunedin. The graveyard one was taken in Andersons Bay cemetery and the one with the street lights was taken from the same cemetery looking out over St Clair, the small line in the centre of the photo is the International Space Station on it's way over.

They were very visible in Wellington too which shows you how mental it was.

Amazing photos. Apparently the Aurora Australis could be seen all the way to Auckland. It was cloudy on the Central North Island last night so I didn't see them. It's cloudy this evening.

What time did you take these photos ?

You ratbag

I cannot believe that we missed this.

On the Tuesday we were in Christchurch staying close to the CBD with our visitors . It was cloudy and drizzly and they wanted their beds early coz of their flights out. However, the Sunday before we were up at the observatory at Tekapo. I'd have stayed in that area if it had been just us and not bothered with Christchurch.


So but for two days...............


Great photos BM. Just a wee bit envious. In fact, a huge lot envious.
