This mesmerizing picture of the Aurora Australis (Southern Lights) was taken in 1994 from the space shuttle Endeavour.

Aurora Australis (Southern Lights) taken by the crew of Expedition 28 on board the International Space Station. This sequence of shots was taken September 17, 2011 from 17:22:27 to 17:45:12 GMT, on an ascending pass from south of Madagascar to just north of Australia over the Indian Ocean.

I can't imagine myself seeing this without you by my side.

n the northern hemisphere, we call it the Aurora Borealis, while the southern gets the Aurora Australis. From the Earth, it looks like great multicolored ribbons slowly moving across the sky, while from space, you can clearly see that something interesting is going on in Earth's atmosphere.

The phenomenon of solar winds interacting with the earth’s magnetic fields known as the aurora borealis, or more commonly the Northern Lights, is a heart-stoppingly fantastic thing to witness.
