Aurora from the International Space Station

This is an HD video taken of the earth’s Aurora both northern (aurora borealis) and southern (aurora australis) from the International Space Station.

The Aurora is an incredible light show caused by collisions between electrically charged particles released from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere and collide with gases such as oxygen and nitrogen. The lights are seen around the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres.
