Southern Lights filmed from International Space Station1 min read

The European Space Agency has released time-lapse footage of the Aurora Australis, known as the “southern lights”, that was filmed from the International Space Station.

The footage was shot on 23 July at the South Pole.

Auroras are caused by the interaction of the solar wind – a stream of charged particles escaping the Sun – and our planet’s magnetic field and atmosphere.
