Amazing view of an aurora from space


Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency shows how incredible an aurora looks from space, and was captured by Alexander Gerst 10 days after he arrived at the International Space Station for the Horizons mission.

The time lapse is made up of 950 images, which were taken every 0.5 seconds during one of the Space Station’s 16 daily orbits.
