Tasmania, the southernmost state of Australia, has been enjoying relatively frequent aurora. This fantastic image titled “Air Traffic” was snapped by Jason L. Stephens (Photography) on 27 August, 2014.
This particular spot is quite close to the Launceston Airport. “I noticed the plane coming into land from a fair distance so timed the start of the exposure the best I could…..only had one chance!” Jason commented.
