Northern Lights: The most beautiful thing seen from space
Take a look at this incredible footage of the Northern Lights taken from the International Space Station.
Solar winds colliding with Earth’s magnetic field generate the Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis.
The video was captured by astronaut Thomas Pesquet, who has been monitoring the Northern Hemisphere’s green light for the past month.
The aurora begins on the sun’s surface when solar activity ejects a cloud of gas. This is referred to as a coronal mass ejection by scientists (CME). If one of them makes it to Earth, which takes around 2 to 3 days, it will smash with the Earth’s magnetic field.
If you could see the shape of this field, it would make Earth look like a comet with a long magnetic “tail” spanning a million miles behind Earth in the opposite direction of the sun.
This is Thomas Pesquet’s second journey to the ISS, and he will remain on board until October.
