Awesome Mawson auroras

This week at Mawson: 20 September 2013

Mawson is an awesome place to see auroras throughout the winter. Pick any clear night and there will be some auroral activity. Justin our chef has been particularly focused on getting that perfect photo and has spent many cold hours outside on those cold winter nights huddled over his camera, hands almost frost bitten, cheeks freezing, cold batteries warming against his skin to get just one more shot out of them.

Enjoy the following selection of the results of his determination and effort.

The aurora makes a bright green arc in the night sky over the station.
