Time-lapse video from International Space Station
A time-lapse video of the Earth -- shot by astronauts on board the International Space Station -- has captured an extraordinary view of the northern lights.
The amazing footage of the Aurora Borealis was recorded by the crews of expeditions 28 and 29 using a special low-light 4K-camera 240 miles above Earth and edited together.
Produced by German artist Michael Konig, the five-minute video starts off by showing the USA before moving on to Australia where the Aurora Australis are visible.
The footage also takes in flashes of lightning in the clouds, light caused by human cities and moving satellites illuminated by the sun… now we suggest you stop reading this and press play.
