Northern Light, also known as Aurora Borealis, is a natural light display (Aurora) in the sky, caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere (Wikipedia). In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the Aurora Borealis (or the northern lights), named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas.

When seen from Earth, the light play is exceptional but seen from space it’s even more amazing and beautiful.  Luckily, the ISS space station captured the Aurora Borealis from high above. Watch the video below and experience the grandeur of this natural phenomenon for yourself.
