Auroras seen from space mystify and amaze (pictures)

Magical lights dance across Earth's atmosphere in this collection of images of auroras seen from the International Space Station and beyond.

The SpaceX Dragon has departed the International Space Station on Tuesday after a 23-day docked mission to start its trip back to Earth later on Tuesday, carrying precious ISS experiment hardware and science samples back to Earth for post-flight analysis. Following its release at 10:56 UTC, Dragon began a short free flight that will set the stage for its Deorbit Burn, Re-Entry and Splashdown landing in the Pacific Ocean. Source NASA
