Experiencing the phenomenal beauty of the Aurora Borealis is on many a bucket list and nearly a million of us flock to the Arctic every year to catch a glimpse. While this may be the best place on Earth to see the Northern Lights, NASA’s Scott Kelly has an even more impressive view…from space.
Kelly marked his 141st day aboard the International Space Station with this short but spectacular video, allowing us to join him as he soared above the Aurora Borealis at around 17,000 mph, just as the Sun was rising.

He will be up there alongside Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko for a total of 342 days so be sure to follow him on Twitter for more updates like this.
