Parts of southern Australia may be in store for a spectacular light show on Thursday night.

The Bureau of Meteorology’s space weather services team has issued an alert for an aurora, which may be visible from Tasmania and Victoria’s coastline.

The rare phenomenon features a spectacular shimmering display of lights dancing across the night sky.

The bureau says it may be seen during night time if the observing conditions are good at high latitudes.

The natural light display in the sky is caused by particles from the sun, millions of kilometres away, interacting with the Earth’s magnetic field.

The auroras in the southern hemisphere are known as aurora australis, or southern lights, while near the north pole they are called aurora borealis, or northern lights.
