The Southern Lights dancing across Great Oyster Bay Tasmania. Not sure if it's just me, but these solar events seem more frequent in the last 5 years. It's an amazing spectacle viewed from many parts of Tasmania with an uninterrupted view to the South. Put it on your bucket list, many people only know about the Northern Lights mainly due to population numbers and proximity in the Northern hemisphere. #auroraaustralis#solar#lowlightphotography#longexposure#nationalgeographic#bom#weatherzone#science#astronomy#nature#landscape#landscapephotography#instapic@sci.nate

The Aurora Australis sits majestically tied up at the wharf in front of my hotel
The Aurora Australis sits majestically tied up at the wharf in front of my hotel. She is an ice breaker and research vessel used by the Australian Antarctic Division. For the moment though, she stands in silent vigil over my little car, all alone in the car park. It is early and I have awoken with a headache, as the room, no matter how well appointed is stuffy. Not a good start to a day that will be spent in a room full of strangers learning 100 new things. Already I miss the sanctuary of my little cottage and my garden. Hobart is much, much bigger and busier than I remember. I have not been here since I was a young girl. Then it was a sleepy little hollow at the bottom of the world, now it is a vibrant, living, breathing city that could easily compare to any city on the mainland. Hobart sits in the shadow of kunanyi / Mt Wellington, it’s suburbs hug the banks of the Derwent River and sprawl into the foothills at the base of the majestic mountain. I like that our natural landmarks are being returned to the names bestowed on them by our First People. Already there is a generation of young Australians who know Ayers Rock by no other name than Uluru and I hope that one day that may be true of all such landmarks. The English names given to them by white settlers will finally disappear from memory and just become words on old maps. Yesterday I detoured on my way to Hobart to visit @flywheel_tasmania in New Norfolk. The road took me along the banks of the Derwent and past the wetlands and on the opposite bank the huge Norske Skog paper mills. Set right on the banks of the river, it’s “smoke” stacks sending huge plumes of steam high into the air. As I returned along the Lyell Highway, mist was already rising from the river. The waters, filled with black swans and water fowl and there, sitting on a dead branch in the water, a gulp of cormorants. One sitting in typical pose, snake like neck turned to the side and wings akimbo as he waited for his feathers to dry in the dying light of the sun, having returned from diving for his dinner. I can hear sounds of the city as it wakes from slumber, the day has begun and I must away. 🌃

The most recent flight of our SOFIA flying observatory brought the team so far south that they spotted the southern lights, also known as Aurora Australis. The Milky Way and Mars are also visible in this image taken at 43,000 feet. The SOFIA telescope (@SOFIAtelescope) uses an outfitted Boeing 747SP jetliner that’s been modified to carry a 106-inch diameter telescope, and uses infrared light to study celestial objects best viewed from the Southern Hemisphere. The latest flight was aimed at studying the center of the Milky Way and the Tarantula Nebula. Creating images of the celestial magnetic fields found in the center of our Milky Way galaxy will help scientists better understand the shape and strength of these fields and gain new insights into how they impact the processes in the our galactic center. Mapping the Tarantula Nebula, which has a cluster of thousands of stars forming at once, will help researchers determine the speed and direction of the molecules in the nebula to determine if the material is expanding, forming new stars or if the star formation process has been stunted.

Wow, 2 years ago allready. I was lucky enough to capture a G3 storm here in Victoria, Cape Schank National Park. This was a wicked chase as comming from Tasmania to live for a spell I really wanted to capture the Southern Light in a different state. Being a solar Minimum now these beauties are harder to capture. #wow_australia#parksvictoria#australian_pho#australia_shotz#auroraaustralis#naturenooky#welivetoexplore#wandervictoria#seascapes#cannonaustralia#samyang_australia#melbourneiloveyou#morningtonpeninsula

Mortimer Bay is probably my favourite spot for chasing the Aurora Australis! And This night was probably one of my favourite nights to capture the lady. The heavy clouds had started to clear and created in an interesting sky and the long exposure shot created that balmy look of the water where the gorgeous green colour from the Aurora was reflecting in it. It was almost like meditating in the beauty of the nature. Oh and that tree and it’s roots, I mean how can you be NOT in love 😍

The aurora borealis and australis have always fascinated the mankind. They are created through the solar winds stream away from the Sun at speeds of about 1 million miles per hour that pass through the magnetosphere. As the electrons enter the earth's upper atmosphere, they will encounter atoms of oxygen and nitrogen at altitudes from 20 to 200 miles. The color of the aurora depends on which atoms are struck, and the altitude of the meeting. Green 💚- oxygen, up to 150 miles in altitude. Red ❤️- oxygen, above 150 miles in altitude. Blue 💙- nitrogen, up to 60 miles in altitude. Purple/violet 💜- nitrogen, above 60 miles in altitude. #universe#aurora#northernlights#auroraborealis#SouthernLights#AuroraAustralis#sky#night#physic#learning#beautiful#light

WOW! Have you ever seen such a magical night rainbow? 📷@erin_boyd_photography Regrann from @erin_boyd_photography - Reposting an old photo of mine because it’s quite possibly one of my favourites AND it was unintentional. This is the Aurora Australis seen from Culburra Beach, NSW. This particular night, a family friend and I headed down to the beach for some Milky Way shots. When I reviewed the images on the back of my camera I was noticing a pink glow which I thought was sensor trouble because it wasn’t visible to the naked eye. It wasn’t until we did a bit of investigating that we discovered it was the Aurora Australis! How magical 💞 - #regrann

Goats Bluff Beams. This is one of my happy places and where all the night photography began. It was at good old "Rebounds" beach where I photographed my first aurora which kicked off a love for the night sky. - Here in Tassie we catch more of a side view of the action due to our latitude location. This allows us more of an opportunity to see the other colours that may appear. The more north of Australia you travel, the less green you're probably likely to see. If an aurora is strong enough it can be seen from central Australia but you'd only catch the tip of the activity and the reds. Aboriginal people commonly saw aurorae as fires in the cosmos, bushfires in the spirit world and an omen of a coming catastrophe. - Goats Bluff, South Arm Peninsula, Tasmania Australia. . . . . #discovertasmania#nightsky#southernlights#aurora#auroraaustralis#amazing_australia_#tasmaniagram#longexposure#astrophotography#timeless_universe#earthpix#natgeo#nightphotography#wildlifeplanet#nakedplanet#seeaustralia#fantastic_universe#ig_masterpiece#world_shotz#longexposure_shots#universetoday#NatgeoSpace#photooftheday#worldaurora#hubs_united#tasmania#instatassie#naidoc2018
