The Aurora Australis, also known as the Southern Lights, can be a natural show of colours. The spectacle was captured in Tasmania by photographer Jo Malcomson, that made a breathtaking time lapse video.
The phenomenon is caused when electrically charged protons and neutrons collide with neutral atoms like oxygen and nitrogen in the upper atmosphere. That produced fluorescent emissions of light.
“Collaborating many long hours of timelapse photography and showcasing the extraordinary night life of our local haunt, South Arm, Tasmania. A symphony of stunning Milky Way and Aurora Australis nightscape scenery, with a sprinkling of whimsical dancing under the stars,” Malcomson said to Storyful.
“It was one of the most spectacular aurora displays I’ve ever witnessed,” she added.
