Sky lights up over Tasmania
Overnight Aurora Australis stunned onlookers over Tasmania and parts of Victoria

The Aurora Australis has put on a dazzling show over the skies of Tasmania and Victoria overnight.

The natural phenomenon, which is caused when a burst of magnetic energy from the sun, enters the earth’s magnetic field through poles.

Mostly occurring at an altitude of 100 to 300km, the beautiful site can be observed from ground, or from space.
