Aurora Australis Timelapse Mt Wellington Feb 23~24 2014

Here is a series of images taken from 11:01 to 12:36 overnight (Feb 23~24 2014) of a nicely shimmering Aurora Australis. There are numerous satellites and/or shooting stars, a few flybys of a helicopter with it’s search light on – I have no idea if it was some kind of drill, or if they were out seriously searching for someone – and even a tripod bump half way through. Quite cold and windy on the mountain last night but it was good to have a nice clear view of the aurora again 🙂

The view over Hobart as the moon rose was also quite picturesque
