I was invited to be on the Singapore Airlines 787-10 delivery flight from Charleston to SIN last week, but I kindly passed (I didn’t want to be that far away, for that long, from my son). However, I ended up super jealous of those on the flight as some of my aviation journalist friends like Zach Honig onboard were tweeting and Instagramming photos of the Northern Lights high above Alaska.
Well, around the same time (March 22/23), a man named Brad Phipps captured the Southern Lights (same as the Northern Lights but in the Southern Hemisphere) in an amazing timelapse while flying over Antarctica. Phipps told Storyful, “Flight to the Lights 2 was the second private chartered flight from New Zealand to fly south to the Antarctic circle with the aim to see and photograph the Aurora Australis, the southern lights.” Check it out above!
