Mount Aurora is a round-topped volcanic summit, 1,040 metres (3,410 ft) high, the highest point on Black Island in the Ross Archipelago. It was named by the New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition (1958–59) after the Aurora, the vessel which conveyed the Ross Sea Party of Ernest Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition (1914–17) to McMurdo Sound.
