Great Southern Land

Shooting stars along with the Aurora Australis or Southern Lights light up the night sky while looking down onto the Great Lake of Tasmania's Central Plateau which resides at an elevation of 1,036 m (3,398 feet). Green aurora tend to occur at altitudes from 100 – 250 km by oxygen atoms emitting light at 557.7 nano-metres. Red aurora are less common and form around 200 – 500 km from oxygen atoms emitting light at 630 nm. Tasmania, Australia
