Southern Lights…from SPAAACE!

Check this out:

It’s the aurora australis, or southern lights, seen from above! It was taken May 29, 2010 from the International Space Station. Bad Astronomy talks about what causes aurorae in the blog post where I found the picture.

Seriously: The aurora. From space. How cool is that?
