Nocturnal - Scenes of the Southern Night, Western Australia

Nocturnal - Scenes of the Southern Night, Western Australia and Chile.
by Colin Legg

This is a selection of nightscape scenes I put together for entry into the 2012 David Malin Awards. The awards are for images of the night sky and landscape captured by Australian astrophotographers.

I am very happy and honoured to report that this video won 1st prize in the ‘animation’ category at the 2012 awards.

A number of interesting sky and space phenomena are included in the clip:

1. Comet Lovejoy.
2. Exploding Meteor and Train.
3. A Total Lunar eclipse from start to finish.
4. Multi coloured air glow in the upper atmosphere and ionosphere.
5. Lightning storms.
