Auroras australes en Uruguay

Auroras australis in Uruguay

In a historic event, the southern auroras could be seen as far north as Uruguay in the early hours of Saturday morning. Although not visible to the naked eye, a long exposure on camera revealed the reddish hue of the auroras in the southern skies.

I captured these photographs from the coast of Los Pinos (Colonia, Uruguay).

This happened due to a series of impressive solar flares that triggered a maximum intensity geomagnetic storm in the Earth's atmosphere, which could be the most severe since 2003.

It looks like it could go on through the weekend, I'll keep you updated through my Instagram account.
