Red Aurora (the other one)

We’ve been treated to so many fantastic videos of the Aurora Borealis this season, but not much on the fabulous Aurora Australis. So here’s a gorgeous short film from cinematographer Alex Cherney that was taken not far from Melbourne Australia at the Mornmington Peninsula. The stunning video was filmed on January 16th and 22nd.
