Very nice. Also known as the Seven Sisters but normally you can only see six. I think there's a star in your photo which could be the seventh.
Do people call this the little saucepan/pot/dipper? Here in the Southern Hemisphere (Australia) many people call Orion "the pot" because it's upside down here. So this constellation can be called the little pot. You have the Big Dipper of course, which we can't see.

I think I do. I was referring to the name a. australis as opposed to the northern lights. I meant it's in Australia (for the benefit of our northern hemisphere friends). WA is fking huge and it could only be seen right at the southern extreme I would bet. Tasmania is really the only regular sighting place in Australia, being furthest south.
