Lights in the sky!

Last Thursday, and again tonight, there’s been enough aurora in the sky for it to be visible where I live – this almost never happens. At least not on moonless nights when there’s no cloud. So, back to basics trying to remember how to do astrophotography. View to the South over Lake Wairarapa, from near Featherston, New Zealand.

Top photo: 20mm lens, 30 second exposure, iso 800, f1.8.

Delightful to be outside, despite the ravenous mosquitos
