Well, this time on Sunday Australian time I will be in the air, asleep, on the way to Europe for Christmas and New Year. For New Year’s Eve we will be in Norway, and mr tog and I are crossing our fingers that the current solar storm will still be burbling away so that we get to see the Northern Lights. To anyone else loving the lights, I recommend the Flickr cluster-tag “aurora“.
Through that group, even though I was looking for the aurora borealis, I found some fantastic shots of the aurora australis from Antarctic M, who seems to be leading a terribly healthy outdoors life on Halley station with intermittent forays onto the Falklands and South Georgia. Miriam has some really terrific photos.

Purty seals and penguins, and majestic ice and mountains. A cool break from bushfires for any readers in Tasmania and Victoria.
