THE Wimmera was treated to Aurora Australis once again at the weekend.

Red skies: The skies lit up across the Wimmera as residents were treated to Aurora Australis once again at the weekend. This photo of the Aurora was taken at 11.42pm. Pictures: Lyn Mackenzie.

Lyn McKenzie was one of many photographers capturing the phenomenon.

She said it was the best show she had seen at Stawell.

“The one on Saturday night showed us several different types of aurora including a Proton Arc and Picket Fence.

“We don’t get to see it as clearly as Tasmania usually because we get the top of it, but on Saturday night we were not only able to capture it on camera,it was very clearly visible to the naked eye. It danced across the horizon as a whitish glow which showed the curtain effect as well as the beams shooting upwards.

“The cloud also co-operated by clearing right away and only returned as the show waned around midnight.’’
