Aurora australis lights up Uluru
Unbeknownst to her at the time, she was taking photos of the aurora australis, or southern lights.
After stitching the 30-second exposures taken at 5-second intervals, the movement of the light became clear.
A particularly strong solar storm in the 11-year sun cycle hit the Earth on Thursday night and it resulted in the auroras being visible in places that don’t usually see them.
