Contest Rules

Aurora Astronomy
This contest is devoted to fine art photography only . . You are invited to submit your finest most beautiful photographs of an aurora for a feature opportunity in our lovely group Atmospheric Optics

'An aurora (plural: aurorae or auroras; from the Latin word aurora, 'dawn') is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions .

In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the aurora borealis (or the northern lights). The aurora borealis most often occurs near the equinoctes . . .

Its southern counterpart, the aurora australis (or the southern lights), has almost identical features to the aurora borealis and changes simultaneously with changes in the northern auroral zone and is visible from high southern latitudes in Antarctica, South America, New Zealand, and Australia' - Information source: aurora astronomy
