Stunning Timelapse of Southern Lights Captured Over Scenic Lake
Stargazers across New Zealand gathered to watch the Southern Lights over the April 22-23 weekend.
Though the Aurora Australis is <a href="https://newswire.storyful.com/collections/aurora-australis-2017_3735" target="_blank">not an unusual display</a> in New Zealand, it rarely shows itself on consecutive nights with this intensity. <a href="http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/91832560/southern-lights-delight-kiwis-from-auckland-to-otago-as-aurora-lights-up-night-sky" target="_blank">New Zealand media outlet Stuff.co.nz reported</a> that the weather conditions meant the lights were visible from Auckland and Christchurch, where they are less frequently seen.
This time lapse shows the Southern Lights from Lake Hawea, near Wanaka on the South Island, on April 23.
