The Southern Lights shimmered over Tasmanian and New Zealand over the October 13 weekend with astrophotographers and meteorology enthusiasts flocking to see the technicolor display. Photographer Danial Lam captured the Aurora Australis over White Hills and Hobart Airport in a dazzling timelapse. The Aurora Australis is created when solar wind and magnetic fields are thrown into space by the sun, carrying particles that collide with the Earth’s magnetic field and produce energy releases known as auroras.
