Aurora australis lights up Uluru
Emma Blythman was in the right place at the right time to capture this fantastic aurora australis over 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.
