Stunning Northern Lights display as seen from the ISS (Video)

This is what the Aurora Borealis looks like from the International Space Station. The Northern Lights are stunning from the ground – but equally as mesmerising from onboard the ISS.

A 30-second video, filmed from the International Space Station, shows a bright green light moving over the dark surface of the Earth.

The northern lights, or aurora, is a natural light display in the Earth’s sky, predominantly seen from the Arctic and Antarctic.

While few people on Earth are lucky enough to have seen the spectacle, even fewer can claim to have seen it from space.

Paolo Nespoli, the Italian astronaut from the European Space Agency who captured the footage, took to Twitter to share his joy at seeing the aurora, which he described as being “out of this world.”

The International Space Station confirmed on Twitter that the stunning display, captured on September 15, was above Canada.
