Aurora Australis – The stunning light show over New Zealand

The Aurora Australis put on an incredible show from March 17-19th. I ventured out for some photos on the 17th with the most incredible auroral display I’ve witnessed.
The following night the skies were mostly clear, so I setup an almost 8 hour timelapse from the wharf in Kingston.

Be sure to check out the video in full HD or 4K:

The clouds and rain came rolling in on the 17th whilst the aurora was reading Kp8 levels!
