Image Of The Week
Aurora Australis from Goats Bluff

This stunning Aurora Australis panorama was captured from Goats Bluff, Tasmania in mid August. There have been several large aurora outbursts in the last month, some reaching as far north as Sydney and the Blue Mountains. The aurora is caused when our sun sends gusts of charged solar particles heading out into space, which react when they hit the atoms and molecules in Earth’s atmosphere, exciting them, causing them to light up. Canon 6D, 14mm, f/2.8, ISO3200, 30s exposures.
