“The first ever commercial flight to the Antarctic Circle from Dunedin New Zealand to intercept the auroral oval on the night of 23 March 2017. The 8 hour flight was a great success. This is a time-lapse video captured while we were still heading south on an intercept course with the international date-line and the 66th parallel.”
