Star Trails, Aurora Australis and Magellanic Clouds

This is an interesting photograph. It combines the very rare Aurora Australis with star trails and the two clouds of Magellan (Large Magellanic Cloud and Small Magellanic Cloud). Taken from dark country skies, the pink in this photograph is all that of the Aurora Australis, blurred over the time of the photograph (due to the aurora’s movement) to form a graduated glow of pink.
