The Southern Lights

Back in January, we published a list of Top Ten Tassie Must-do’s and called for readers to submit their very own ‘must-do’ suggestion. Below is a post based on one of the top suggestions: the endlessly alluring Aurora Australis.

The why

The Northern Lights tend to steal all the, well, limelight when it comes to natural night-sky phenomena. It’s become a pilgrimage of sorts, flocking to the world’s northern-most countries for a glimpse of the visual spectacle.

But before you go jetting off for Scandinavian shores, perhaps you should consider what’s on offer closer to home—for Tasmania is the ideal location for viewing the lesser known, but by no means less impressive, Southern Lights.

The what

An aurora, or polar light, is a relatively common phenomenon caused by the collision of charged solar particles with gases in the upper atmosphere. In the Arctic and Antarctic regions it is respectively called Aurora Borealis (or Northern Lights) and Aurora Australis (or Southern Lights).

These collisions cause the particles to fluoresce, emitting light at many different wavelengths. The result is a blaze of swirling colour, of vivid reds, greens and purplish blues. Interestingly, to the naked eye the Aurora Australis can sometimes resemble nothing more than a faint cloud, and it takes long exposure photography to reveal its hidden beauty.

The when

While auroral activity can occur throughout the year, day and night, the best time to view the Lights is at night during the winter months. This is because, during winter, areas around the South (and North) Pole experience longer periods of darkness.

With the Earth having recently emerged from a solar maximum, the peak of its 11-year solar weather cycle, the last couple of years have seen some of the best light shows in living memory. So while it’s difficult to resist the lure of a warm bed on a wintry night, we urge you to rug up, grab your smartphone and brave the outdoors—you may just be the envy of Instagram come morning!
 
Conditions for optimal viewing include a dark night with very little cloud, no bright moon, and no light pollution. The brightest displays typically last for about 1–3 hours, and the best viewing times are generally between 10:00pm and 1:00am.

The where

Tasmania’s unique southern location means that the Lights can actually be seen during this phase of the solar cycle as often as every week. The whole of Tasmania is really equally good as long as you find a spot away from the light without obstructions overhead. Avoid urban areas, whose glare of artificial light and layers of air pollution can spoil the view. A dark beach, hillside or headland are all prime locations.

As for where we recommend specifically? It’s a near impossible task to narrow down the locations to just one or two. In recent years we have seen spectacular displays over the skies of several Tassie towns, inlets and parks—including Evandale, Cradle Mountain, Eaglehawk Neck, South Arm, Verona Sands, Lake Pedder and Narawntapu National Park. (So in short: all over!)

Admittedly, however, the Aurora Australis is a fickle wonder, and witnessing it in all its glory remains a matter of pot luck. Some weeks the Lights come out to play every night without fail, putting on a dazzling performance; other weeks, they’ll barely be a blip on the horizon. The best way for star gazers to keep track of auroral activity over Tassie is through the Aurora Service, which provides thorough hourly forecasting.
