On Saturday night, 11 May, Victorians were treated to a truly spectacular natural light show — the Aurora Australis. It was a rare occurence — the product of an extreme geomagnetic solar storm.  While many Victorians flocked to the beaches, the southern lights could be seen right here in our backyards in Manningham.

Here are some stunning shots taken by local residents.
