Third Time Lucky

Made an impromptu trip up to Mt Buffalo last weekend. After the rain and clouds cleared I headed up to a lookout that I have been to numerous times before to see if there was any thing going on to the south.

Third time I have managed to image Aurora Australis from Mt Buffalo. Certainly not as big a display as the previous two but it is always nice to see it from this far north.

Cracking Capture, the aurora has been playing up north as well, but as usual there is too much cloud cover

wow. so pretty. do they move as fast in real life as they do on tv?

Thank you so much :D (Big Grin) A lot of the ones you see on TV are timelapse movies where the sky/aurora move faster than real life (often a few hours of motion compressed into tens of seconds).  There is some real time aurora footage out there though- search "Real Time Aurora" and you should find plenty.

Magnificent shot!  We in the northern hemisphere usually don't get to see what the southern stars look like.  I take it those are the two Magellanic Clouds?

Thank you so much :D (Big Grin) Yes they are the Magellanic Clouds.

Asking nicely for permission will get you a lot further than just stealing someone elses work
