This panoramic image captures the breathtaking spectacle of the aurora australis at the Powlett River’s mouth in Kilcunda, along the South Gippsland coast. The sky is ablaze with vibrant hues of lime, yellow, and pink, unfettered by even the slightest hint of cloud cover. The aurora’s radiant colors, along with the twinkling stars, mirrored perfectly in the tranquil waters below, creating a mesmerizing, almost surreal, reflection.
