Parts of south-east Australia were treated to a spectacular light show over the weekend as the Aurora Australis, or the Southern Lights, lit up the night sky.
Photographer Rebecca Potter took these incredible images just 25km south of the Victorian town of Ararat.
"There was an arc on the horizon, followed by beam or columns, like thousands of people shining torches towards the heavens. Towards the end of the show there was a glow with ruffling curtains of faint colour," Rebecca told BuzzFeed News.
Rebecca also managed to capture this time lapse of the spectacular show.
“Skywatchers were the beneficiaries of a lucky coincidence in recent days,” Jonathan Nally, editor of space news web site SpaceInfo.com.au, told BuzzFeed News.
“Put it all together, and you had perfect conditions for aurora watching” Nally says. He added that we’re roughly at the peak of the solar activity cycle right now.
Of course social media also blew up, with many posting their own images across Twitter and Instagram. #NoFilter.
