Photo Friday: Aurora Australis – Antarctica
During his final days in Antarctica, Keith was able to finally capture the photo he had hoped to get – that of the Aurora Australis over the Discovery Hut.
I went to hut point and managed to get pictures of [Discovery Hut] with multiple bands of green and blue auroras streaming in large ribbons in the sky to the west of town. The lighting was just right to illuminate the hut in a nice moon glow and the horizon was lit by the setting sun making a surreal sight that I will not ever forget. Those auroras were likely the last of them that I will see on this trip since the night is leaving us quickly and the days are getting long, but I can’t think of a better way to say goodbye to them – I have been trying to get pictures of the Discovery Hut with auroras all winter and I was finally successful on the last night and with some the best auroras I have seen all winter. Goodbye Aurora Australis, I will miss your company!
