A Zulu soldier on patrol pauses to admire the aurora australis shimmering in the South African night.

The aurora australis is pretty much the Southern Hemisphere's equivalent to our aurora borealis, or "Northern Lights". I don't know if you actually can see it from South Africa since it's usually an Antarctic phenomenon, but then nobody has lived in Antarctic for the vast majority of human history. Though I read you can see it from southern Australia or New Zealand, so maybe an Aboriginal Australian or Maori spectator could have worked too.
