You wouldn’t think the Southern Lights (Aurora Australis) would be visible this far north but if you were looking to the south early this morning you would have seen a beautiful pink glow on the horizon.  A recent mass coronal ejection from the Sun is causing some fantastic aurora activity that should continue to be active for the next 48 hours.

Local scientist Andre Phillips said that his equipment detected heightened activity in the magnetosphere around 3:45am and 4:30am and was able to obtain an image from his all sky camera showing the aurora.

If you want to catch a glimpse of the aurora activity tonight then get up high to get an uninterrupted view to the southern horizon.
