Northern Lights over Canada and the United States

Astronauts on the International Space Station recently filmed what is among the most spectacular night imagery ever taken from space of the United States and Canada. The video, comprised of hundreds of sequential still images is now available.


The imagery is available on the internet at NASA’s Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth: http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov
Taken between January 29 and February 3, the images show a continent ablaze with light, from the electric glow of hundreds of cities to a spectacular aurora borealis flickering on the northern horizon. The video includes flights above Mexico showing the entire Gulf Coast and continuing the length of the East Coast. Other video capture scenes from Brownsville, Texas, to the Great Lakes and above the St. Lawrence Seaway. Still another sequence begins in the western U.S. and continues across the Great Plains.
