NASA's IMAGE Spacecraft View of Aurora Australis from Space [video] by NASA: From space, the aurora is a crown of light that circles each of Earth’s poles. The IMAGE satellite captured this view of the aurora australis (southern lights) on 9/11/05, four days after a record-setting solar flare sent plasma—an ionized gas of protons and electrons—flying towards the Earth. #Astronomy #Aurora_Australis
