Looking North East from Cowans hill over the pine forset on the East side of Tekapo village, you can see Lake Tekapo on the Left side of the image, this is the only time that I have personally seen Aurora activity looking in a Northward direction from Tekapo. The bright stars in the top left are the tail of Leo constellation and the bright star close to the ground right of center is Arcturus
