Sightings of Aurora Australis

Written by on April 3, 2023

“My camera captured the aurora in all its glory. Mission accomplished!”

The Southern Lights, or Aurora Australis, have been particularly vivid this season across New Zealand.

Night skies erupting with green and pink light streams have entranced aurora hunters, with many staying up all night to get the perfect shot.

“Faced with such a scene, you can instantly forget all your troubles, and only lament the insignificance of human beings in front of nature,” one observer said.

On a clear night, the natural light show can last for one to three hours.
