There is a brand new book, “The Aurora Chasers Handbook” which is out now, just in time for Christmas all about Tasmania’s magnificent southern lights, the Aurora Australis! The book is 96 pages and features the photographs of many Tasmanian landscape photographers, as well as great information explaining the phenomenon that is the aurora, including when and where to see the aurora in Tasmania, what causes the aurora and why we have been seeing it relatively frequently over the past 18 months or so.
Margaret Sonnemann, who started the Aurora Australis Tasmania Facebook page a couple of years ago has been the driving force behind making this book happen and I am very proud that my photos of the Aurora over the Hazards at Coles Bay and Cradle Mountain have been selected for the front and back covers, and a few more of my images grace the inside pages. To those who haven’t discovered this group on Facebook I highly recommend you join, as it is a great way to keep up to date on aurora sightings in Tasmania.
