Green and red hues could be spotted throughout Tasmanian skies on Friday night.
The Bureau of Meterology said the Aurora Australis may be visible from Tasmania and the southern coast of mainland Australia because of a high-speed solar wind stream.
The stream is caused by a recurrent hole in the outer atmosphere of the sun.
The green and sometimes red glow comes as result of the oxygen in the earth’s atmosphere, with nitrogen sometimes adding blue hues.
To view the lights, the bureau suggests finding a south-facing spot with clear views and at night.
The spectacle, also known as the Southern Lights can be triggered by a burst of activity from the sun, which sends particles into the earth’s magnetic field.
In May, the Aurora Australis was visible to the naked eye throughout the state.
The bureau also said the Southern Lights may have been visible on Thursday night, too.
