Auroras from Space (ISS) - February 7, 2012

Canada's Aurora Borealis from Earth and Space

On the night of February 6-7, 2012, astronauts on board the International Space Station (ISS) photographed auroras over northern Canada while the station passed south of Hudson's Bay – 0:09-0:15 a.m. (EST) or 10:09-10:15 p.m. (MST). The same auroras were captured by the AuroraMAX online observatory in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. AuroraMAX's roving cameras also captured additional photos and a video of the same auroral display.

Science is beautiful
