View From Space Reveals 'Awesomeness' of Southern Lights in Time-Lapse Video

NASA astronaut and flight engineer Jack Fischer shared photos and a time lapse video that he captured of a stunning glowing green aurora borealis from an altitude of almost 250 miles.

The occurrence of Aurora is attributable to the transmission magnetised plasma particles made by solar wind from the sun toward Earth; and when those magnetised particles meet up the atmosphere of earth, they become multi-coloured auroras.

On July 23, American astronaut Jack Fischer tweeted a time-lapse video he took of the southern lights last month. "Well folks, it looks like this ... awesome sauce is green".

This breathtaking timelapse video shows the spectacular beauty of the Northern Lightrs from the International Space Station.
