The Southern Aurora or Aurora australis is a lighting phenomenon [not lightning, the ziggy zaggy stuff] seen in the Southern Hemisphere towards the South Pole. It is rarely seen in mainland Australia and not often in Tasmania. However, New Zealand often gets a nice dose and I remember it there from my childhood. It always filled me with awe.

Therefore, I am posting a link directly to another blog that has a great summary of the Auroras, both North & South, we have experienced over the latest sun flare period from March 12th to 18th, 2012.

Thank you A Know.
