Aurora Australis from Perth Western Australia, so faint it wasn’t visible out in the field visually or distinguishable on the camera, rather only evident as moving pillars of pink flicking between frames on the PC at home. The Aurora Australis occured between 8:15pm and 9pm on the 14th February. The rising moon then started to brighten the sky and wash out the aurora.
I’ve brought back to life my bug photography page with a new dragonfly photograph from today at Lake Leschenaultia:
I enjoyed a night at the ASWA Tammin observing site this weekend (November 2013) and have a few photographs below to show from the trip.

I took a ride to Lake Leschenaultia for the first time in a month or so and was surprised to see how full it is currently, probably the fullest I have seen it. There’s a steady flow of water in from the surrounding wetlands and streams, and a steady flow out over the overflow.
Kids were having a great time at several spots around the shore but particularly the overflow, using nets to see what they could find in the water.
A few photographs of the lake full and overflowing are below.
