Aurora isn't common here, so when the news said it might be seen, Lil says, "we should go have a look". No worries, think best spot will be 3,000 ft up the Mt, looking South. OK, it's a few degrees above freezing and pitch dark (no moon) when we rock up to the viewing platform at Dawson Falls visitor centre.

Anyway the lights where barely visible to the naked eye.  A camera is more sensitive to low light colours, so you could capture more than you could actually see. Several of the folks only saw on camera viewfinders.



Tim, a local professional photographer was there too, and got a better view with his pro camera and lens.

http://www.stuff.co.nz/travel/destinations/91861007/taranaki-photographer-captures-the-rare-aurora-australis

For reference he was shooting ISO 10,000 with a F2.0 lens and 25 sec exposure. My pic was ISO 1600, F 3.5 and a 30 sec exposure, and a bit of tweaking with the contrast levels.

Anyway Lil's bucket list is to see a real overhead Aurora. Tricky in the Southern hemisphere.

Cool!  I can only remember seeing the lights once here, it was quite faint but neat to see.

Predawn thunder cloud over Tampa  Bay while JMoore and I were netting bait. 

 
Rainbow in a cloud out over the Gulf of Mexico. 

  We were fortunate to dodge all of the small storms. We even saw a waterspout in the distance but the picture was not impressive.
