Posted:where do you have to go in australia to most likely see them on any given night? I don't know anything about your crazy pole besides it has penguins, pretty much.

Are they as common in like, tasmania or the tip of south africa as they are in areas of similar latitude and longitute in canada and europe (bits of asia to)

Also do penguins ever steer off course and end up in harbours they aren't supposed to be? Like sydney harbour? where they live a increadibly cute lifestyle in the wrong ecosystem? if not why not?

Posted:the various "space weather" indecies indicate that there is probably strong auroral activety presently, even in the mid lattitude regions, so it is distinctly possible.
