Aurora seen from the International Space Station
November 26, 2001
As geomagnetic storms caused beautiful displays of aurora across the United States, astronauts onboard the International Space Station also had the opportunity to take a look. Green colors of the aurora are dominant in this image captured by a digital still camera on October 4, 2001. Auroras are caused when high-energy electrons pour down from the Earth’s magnetosphere and collide with atoms.
