New Zealand; North Island aurorae tend to be red, while South Island aurorae tend to be green.

The green aurora has concentric circles in the middle of it. This is a camera artifact, caused I believe, by two lens surfaces being in contact and in the monochromatic (one colour) light of aurorae, producing "Newton's Rings".
