Aurora Australis


This is a breathtaking display of the Southern Lights, the Aurora Australis, and filmed on location in Antarctica. This is a phenomenon occurring when particles of the solar wind interact with the terrestrial magnetosphere and ionosphere, producing the resulting like the equivalent in the Northern hemisphere, the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, both happening further toward either pole and much less so, often unseen, a lower latitudes except during periods of extreme solar activity. Outstandingly beautiful!
