Nice glow. I've seen and also photographed Northern lights in Finland for a couple of times, but never thought there might be Southern lights as well. Well, why not?

Aurora australis instead of borealis.
I've seen the northern, but not the southern.
This one is red.
North and south, it's the same sun and the same magnetic field, but does the polarity change the colors?

Hi Angky....I dont think so. The photos taken in Tasmania had this colour at the top down to greens and yellows, so I think all that is happening here is that because I am on the beach and relatively low I am effectively only catching the top of the colours.
If I had climbed the sandhills behind me I may just have caught a bit of the greens.
First attempt at this, so I have learnt from the experience.
