Aurora Australis, 22 June 1911

“The eastern sky was massed with swaying auroral light, the most vivid and beautiful display zI had ever seen—fold  on fold the arches and curtains of vibrating luminosity rose and spread across the sky, to slowly fade and yet again spring to glowing life. . . lustrous streamers shot upward in waves through the system of some dimmer figure as if to infuse new life within it.”

Captain Robert F. Scott
