We are new aurora spotting. Over the last several years I have been trying to see the auroa on the south coast of Australia. My attention was grabbed by this shot in the Geelong Adveriser by Lachlan Manley in June 2015. One of the shots was even from my beach.
I decided that I’m going to see an Aurora. Its October 2018 now and I still haven’t found one. I have subscribed to firstname.lastname@example.org who send me alerts but they either dont materialie or its too cloudy or I’m asleep. To see an aurora, much persistance is required.
