Thank you Graham, fantastic images - and welcome to IIS. Who'd have thought you'd see this on Australian soil? Members of our astronomical society claim to have seen aurorae south west of Sydney several years ago so I guess if the conditions are right, they're right! I envy your experience.

Loved your photo's Graham ,I wish I could have seen them in real time .
Chris there was an aurora seen over Brisbane in 1989,I saw it from Burpengary as a red glow in the sky, and thinking it was from a fire in Brisbane took no notice only to be informed the next morning as to it's true identity:mad2:

Unbelievable, and quite beautiful. You can imagine what folks in previous centuries would have made of these. Thanks for the post.

Any photographic pointers for shooting the aurora?
The view from my place was quite good but lacked colour, perhaps I'll do better to photograph it.
EDIT: On second thoughts, it's only 9:00PM and it's -1° so I won't be going outside.:)
stunning! what a beautiful evening to spend together!

Thank you all for the great feedback, some details on the photography,
aurora images are difficult to capture, especially over head bands and pulses. The horizons are quite easy as a rule, I use the following settings and seem to be able to achieve good results:
Canon 5D-mkII with EF 24-105mm 1.4
remote shutter release
A surdy tripod
ISO between 1000 and 2000
aperture wide open
exposures range from 10 seconds this will achieve a more naked eye image to 20-30 seconds for enhanced colours and light beams
this info is based on where I live, very dark skies and the ability to see the southern horizon, cheers to you all Graham

Stunning aurora shots! How lucky you are to witness such spectacular sights from your home town. I havn't seen anything like the third and fourth shots of the pillars before. Brilliant work!
