International Space Station shares a shimmering display of an Aurora from the space

By Aswin Kumar

ISS boarded French astronaut, Thomas Pesquet, shared a breathtaking video of the southern lights from space which left the netizens bewitched.

The stunning display of lights in the southern hemisphere called the ‘Aurora Australis‘, has always mesmerized its audience with its luminous flickering shades of green, blue, red, and purple lights which illuminates the night sky.

While everyone wants to witness the sight of an Aurora at least once in their lifetime, the astronauts aboard the ISS have witnessed the beauty of an Aurora from above the Earth’s atmosphere. But how lucky can someone be to witness something of that degree?

The video shared by Pesquet (@thom_astro) captures the greens of an Aurora over a blue ocean while the space station travels over it

The video captioned “Clouds compete for attention in this aurora timelapse over a blue ocean” has garnered over 100k views with more than 400 comments.

Many users expressed their reactions to the videos.  A user wrote, “Amazing… Thanks for sharing this with us ” and some expressed using green heart emojis perhaps matching the hue of an Aurora.

Meanwhile, Thomas Pesquet is currently onboard the space station for a project by European Space Agency.
