Incredible Video of Earth and Aurora from Space

Posted by Kirk
In case you haven't caught this video from NASA, be sure to check it out. It was shot from the International Space Station with a low light high definition camera to capture the Northern Lights, Southern lights and City Lights below. Watch carefully at 20 seconds and you can see the light pollution from Chicago actually illuminates the solar panels of the space station some 350 km above.
