Some of my pics....seeing them in person is a zillion times better. Camera does no justice. Also the stars were absolutely amazing. Felt so close
like you could reach out and touch them. Also, these arent as amazing as the one in the OP (outside of Fairbanks, AK):
Here is another video I found of Aurora's FROM SPACE. It explains how the green is because of oxygen etc. Fascinating. First couple minutes talks
about airglow and then aurora's come in. For a special treat the video captures the big Manicouagan crater in Northern Canada illuminated by the
airglow. Very cool.
I thought a space view of the Aurora would best fit ATS taste.
