View The Northern Lights From The ISS

The view of the Northern Lights from the International Space Station will leave you speechless.

The International Space Station (ISS), including its large solar arrays, spans the area of a U.S. football field, including the end zones, and weighs 924,739 pounds. The complex now has more liveable room than a conventional six-bedroom house, and has two bathrooms, a gymnasium and a 360-degree bay window.

Since its launch on October, 31, 2000, the ISS has gravitated around earth thousands of times, and continues to captivate global audiences with such beautiful footage as this video. Be sure to watch the video in HD, and enjoy one of nature's great spectacles from the eyes up above.
