Milky Way and Aurora Australis over Strahan, Tasmania

February - Himal

Stars clustering in a band vertically. The Milky Way. Bottom right is a red and green haze, the Aurora Australis. Some building in the distance with lights on at the bottom.
This was taken on my iPhone 14 Pro using long exposure in Strahan on the west coast of Tasmania. It shows some of the Milky Way, our own galaxy, and near the horizon a bit of red and green haze. This is the Aurora Australis, or the "Southern Lights." Solar winds and particles hitting the Earth's magnetosphere.
