aurora australis

last night the skies over a lot of australia and new zealand glowed - the aurora australis.  this photo was captured in perth, western australia by colin legg.

you can also see the milky way shooting across the sky and the large magellanic cloud - a small irregular galaxy smudged just at the top of the red glowing gas.

the southern hemisphere night sky is so lovely.
