Aurora commenced with green bands to about 25deg in the southern sky at about 1300UT.  At about 1415UT, on Mt Wellington, Bands/curtains from East to West to about 35 deg, and were slight green in colour, with occasional red to the south east, and west.  Then had the fast moving continuous waves to the highest peak in the sky, and then about another 15 deg to the north, so it looked like the aurora was coming from the north, so the aurora filled up over half the sky.  There was no cloud, and no moon.  Brilliant!
