Timelapse Captures Aurora Australis in Hobart, Tasmania

Residents of Hobart, Tasmania, were treated to glimpses of the aurora australis, or southern lights, on August 31.The ABC reported numerous sightings of the aurora at locations across the region. It quoted one witness as saying that it was “one of the best he had seen”.Photographer Ashlie Hill captured this spectacular timelapse from the back deck of her home in Howrah, a suburb in greater Hobart. She formed the footage from 97 still images of the scene, which she stitched together in Photoshop.Hill wrote on Instagram that she’d returned from Mortimer Bay a few hours earlier, where the heavy cloud cover prevented her from seeing the aurora. She added that she “was fortunate to catch this through a gap in the clouds.⁣” Credit: Ashlie Hill via Storyful
