Southern Lights 

Following yesterday's post about the Floriade in Canberra, I was looking for an end of week video full of Australian sunshine but then I stumbled upon this great time-lapse footage of the Aurora Australis, or Southern Lights photographed and edited by Anthony (Antz) Powell.

The Southern Lights are the Southern Hemisphere equivalent of the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights and they were filmed during the Antarctic winter in the general vicinity of McMurdo Station and Scott Base, where the sun is below the horizon for 4 months of the year; that's one long night. To give you an idea of how much the light shows were moving in real time, most of the shots were taken over about a 10 minute period.

Antz has spent many years compiling fantastic time-lapse video in Antarctica and is producing a film 'Antarctica Time Lapse: A Year on Ice' about this incredible landscape.
