Southern Lights Dance Across Tasmanian Night Sky

The aurora australis produced an extraordinary light show in the night sky over South Arm, Tasmania, on Sunday, November 22.

Photographer Tim Grimsey captured timelapse footage of the southern lights as they danced above the clouds near Goats Bluff Lookout and Betsy Island.

Speaking to Storyful, Grimsey said the footage was taken from 10 pm until 11 pm. “The southern lights were competing with a strong moonglow, which nicely illuminated the surrounding cliffs,” he said.

Grimsey said he recorded using two Nikon cameras, a D750 and D780. Each frame was captured with a 10-second exposure, he said. Credit: Tim Grimsey via Storyful
