An astronaut’s view of the aurora


The International Space Station is the perfect vantage point for watching the aurora.


A view of the aurora from the International Space Station captured by astronaut Thomas Pesquet on March 27, 2017. “The view at night recently has been simply magnificent,” he wrote. “Few clouds, intense auroras. I can’t look away from the windows.”
