Aurora Udate (from Monday 5 April)
Just updating the aurora alert from Monday. Most parts of Australia were clouded out, correspondent Wes Black saw nothing from Footscray, Melbourne. Andrew Hudspeth was camping at the Walls of Jerusalem in Tasmania and saw a weak auroral display at 9:00 pm. Tony Travalgila in New Zealand got the best view though.
This was the first proper southern aurora (except for those in Antarctica) in a long time. Things can only get better for southern aurora watchers.
