A spectacular aurora australis light show brightened up the night sky above China’s Zhongshan Research Station in Antarctica in recent days.
The green polar lights swirled and undulated, throwing light across the ice-covered ground.
The view was recorded by Chinese researchers who are on their 35th Antarctic mission at Zhongshan Research Station.
The aurora is a natural light phenomenon predominantly seen in the high-latitude regions around the Arctic and Antarctic.
It is caused by disturbances in the magnetosphere by solar wind; a stream of charged particles escaping the Sun.
These disturbances are sometimes strong enough to alter the trajectories of charged particles, causing particles to precipitate into the upper atmosphere and emit light of varying color and complexity.
