While waiting for the lights to "do something" I thought of the of the
significance of the Southern Cross (Crux) and other constellations in
relation to the 'southern glow' and our local landmark Mount Nimrod.
When arranging the composite images I decided this demanded some
featuring, hence the added lines and star flare. The lights of Cave
township were exposed separately.
