The wonders of nature that we rarely get to see. This photographer was certainly in the right place at the right time. What a wonder to capture the brief but brilliant appearance of Aurora Australis over Uluru.
We’re totally in awe of nature’s brilliance of colour, light and energy as seen in this film. Here are a few words from the photographer …
“So, the last few nights I have been going out and taking time lapses of the Milky Way. Last night I took a 30 second exposure at five second intervals for four hours. I noticed some red appearing in some of them but didn’t put much thought into it, I just thought it was strange because it had never shown up in photos I had taken from that spot in the past. It wasn’t until i reviewed the photos on my laptop that I noticed the light was moving in the same way the Aurora Borealis did when I lived in Northern Canada. It is nearly impossible to see the aurora from this latitude. It wasn’t until I checked the space weather report that I saw that the strongest geomagnetic storm of this 11 year solar cycle hit last night and I happened to be photographing it happening next to Uluru!! Check out the time lapse below of possibly the most beautiful thing I have ever seen, the Aurora Australis next to the Milky Way and Uluru!”
