Today’s Image of the Day comes courtesy of NASA and features a look at the Northern Lights glowing over Canada.

The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, are produced when the magnetosphere is disrupted by solar wind, causing charged particles to precipitate.

This image was captured on September 15, 2017 by an astronaut from the Expedition 53 crew on board the International Space Station.
