Some images sent in by correspondents of the amazing Aurora Australis of last night (17 -18 March 2013) are shown above (thanks guys for sharing).
The nearly full on impact from a fairly modest Coronal Mass Ejection saw aurora being detected as far way as the QLD/NSW border. Sadly cloud cover meant many places were unable to see the Aurora Australis, but quite a few people still did, with the cloud even adding to the atmosphere of the images.
Now here's some links to some amazing images from the Aurora Australis Tasmania group (remember what I said about copyright and permissions). There is no particular order to these (and if I have missed you out, it's because I had to stop and go to bed).
