The Aurora Australis

Drawing of the Aurora Australis:

Drawing taken from "Voyage aux iles de la Désolation".

April 2010. The Marion Dufresne has just left the Island of Kerguelen. The boarding was chaotic, the gusting wind blowing the tops off the waves. Once at sea, the wind drops after clearing the sky.

On a night without visual pollution, an aurora Australis suddenly appears. A rare thing at this time of the year and at these latitudes.

This is a difficult phenomenon to capture with a camera when on a boat, but with a drawing, I can! I tried to remember it exactly. On my return, this was one of my first drawings. How could I capture the light of this strange and fascinating phenomenon? It would take several attempts!
