This video was taken by the crew of Expedition 30 on board the International Space Station. The sequence of shots was taken February 8, 2012 from 10:32:23 to 10:36:25 GMT, on a pass from the North Pacific Ocean, south of Alaska, to the northwest corner of the United States. This video displays the Aurora Borealis over Canada and the North Pole, and shows the dynamic motions of the aurora near the beginning of the video. The pass begins looking north towards Alaska, where Anchorage can be seen faintly through the clouds and snow. The pass continues down the coastline towards the northwestern United States, where we can see the Coast Mountains and the Rocky Mountains.

Let's go thousands of miles away and watch the sky over the Indian Ocean
