Astronaut captures stunning footage of the Northern Lights from the International Space Station

The stunning cosmic light shows put on by the Aurora Borealis and Aurora Australis are a stunning thing to watch from Earth, and as seen from space, they look just as astounding. This over-too-soon video captured from the International Space Station (ISS) displays what it looks like to fly over the Aurora Borealis as the sun sided up. Recorded by NASA astronaut (and prolific tweeter) Scott Kelly, the stunning time-lapse footage shows the Northern Lights moving like a liquid in the extents of Earth’s upper atmosphere. The light show gradually turns from a bright green into a dimmer violet as the sun arises from behind. Astronaut Scott Kelly shared this video originally on twitter. You can also watch it below:
