Aurora Australis by intrepidphotos

The Aurora Australis dances over the Great Lake of Tasmania’s Central Plateau with individual beams or curtins visable. The phenomenon is sparked by electrically-charged electrons and protons accelerating down the Earth’s magnetic field lines and colliding with neutral atoms in the upper atmosphere.

Great Southern Land by intrepidphotos

The Aurora Australis or Southern Lights light up the night sky looking down onto the Great Lake of Tasmania’s Central Plateau which resides at an elevation of 1,036 m (3,398 feet). Green aurora tend to occur at altitudes from 100 – 250 km by oxygen atoms emitting light at 557.7 nano-metres. Red aurora are less common and form around 200 – 500 km from oxygen atoms emitting light at 630 nm. Tasmania, Australia

The Dwarfs Aurora by undersoulphotography

The Aurora Australis glowing over the hills surrounding Moke Lake on a dead calm night. I shot this with the Samyang 14mm so it was wide enough to capture the reflection of the Dwarf Galaxies. The 6D handles ISO10,000 pretty damn well!
