Amazing Time-lapse Video of Auroras as Seen From the ISS [Video]

By Jason Fitzpatrick on September 26th, 2011

This time-lapse video, created from a series of 345 images shot from the International Space Station, showcases Auroras in the upper atmosphere of the Earth in a way we never see them from way down here.

I was just poking around the Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth website and saw the series of images and said to myself ‘That is so bloody cool, I should turn that into a video like those guys did for the What does it feel like to fly over planet Earth video’.”

It’s quite a surreal show and, thanks to the miracle of space travel and technology, we get to watch it from the comfort of our desks.
