Aurora 16-4-21

Aurora shot from last Friday I thought some might like to see.

Not great foreground, but still nice enough to look at.

Cheers!

Matt,

Great stuff to see an aurora image from Antarctica. Once done with marveling at the aurora, I was trying to work out what the handrails were in the foreground?

I did manage to get to the peninsula and would have loved to see the aurora however it was during all night sun season

Thanks for sharing.

The handrails are part of the wharf, as it is sea ice there on the right hand side of the image.

This is my second winter down here.
