Last week, we wrote about six of the best places to view the Northern Lights, otherwise known as the Aurora Borealis, with our list including countries like Norway, Canada and Iceland, among others.

For those of you who’d rather venture south to see amazing natural phenomenons, here’s a new one to add to your travel bucket lists: A chartered flight recently completed its first successful flight to view the Aurora Australis, or Southern Lights, with stunning results. The flight, which lasted a total of seven hours, flew south from Dunedin, New Zealand, zig-zagging across the international dateline to give its passengers a close-up look.

The Boeing 767 flight cost travelers $3,950 per pair of window seats in economy and $8,500 per pair of window seats in business. Check out the video below to see what the view was like.
