December Aurora

A little bit of Aurora Australis action Monday night at Lake Ellesmere between 11-12pm, as levels rose sharply. Though being close to the summer solstice, and with a bright moon,  it was a bit more challenging to pick it up in all its glory (and a challenge to stay awake long enough to be out all night to capture it!). Nevertheless, it’s there!

It is always good to experience the glory of the Aurora at this latitude. It is a game of chance, and a lot comes done to the conditions quite literally all aligning. I actually think the cloud cover was quite funky, especially too with the reflections changing quite a bit as the moon came and went from behind cloud cover.
