As seen from space. Just thought I would share this image with ATS. Don't think I've seen one so green before. Very pretty.

Very nice! Don't think I've seen one from space before, at least not like that anyway.

That is the most awesome "Star Trek" looking *real* picture I've ever seen!

It's very cool that the Earth can still make me ooh and aah after all these years.

It almost looks photoshopped it is so surreal. I would love to see some data from samples in and out of the green areas. There is no way to discern what is actually in there from photos or our current data on the atmosphere. As this might be matter that has never been analyzed before and mere speculation won't do. I could imagine a good bit of things that may be pure fantasy but strike a chord.

Amazing picture! Thanks for sharing.

The most commonly observed color of aurora is green, caused by light emitted by excited oxygen atoms.

I've always wondered why they were green! :p
