Gemma Critchley: Aurora Australis – wow, just… Wow

Posted on November 8, 2011 by


Here’s a video of the Aurora Australis (the southern hemisphere’s equivalent to the Northern Lights), as taken from the International Space Station. This sequence of shots was taken September 17, 2011 from 17:22:27 to 17:45:12 GMT, on an ascending pass from south of Madagascar to just north of Australia over the Indian Ocean.

Stunning, isn’t it. I’d quite like to go into space now.
