On Monday 20 April, a rare phenomenon proved to be a stunning form of entertainment for some Australians stuck at home. The Aurora Australis, or the southern lights, covered the evening sky in a green glow for residents of Hobart, Tasmania.
Tim Grimsey, a Hobart local photographer who frequently captures Aurora Australis said, “As we are still in stay home mode in Tasmania, I was lucky enough to be able to shoot the Aurora Australis from my front yard.
“It was so bright and wide that the arc could be seen dancing above kunanyi / Mt Wellington. I honestly never thought that I would see the Aurora Australis so well from my home. It was such a delight and something I am sure I will never forget.”
Australia is home to some of the most wonderfully unique landscapes and incredible natural wonders in the world.
