While docked and onboard the International Space Station on March 21st 2008, an STS-123 Endeavour crewmember, looking northward across the Gulf of Alaska, captured the glowing green beauty of the Aurora Borealis over the Earth

This view featuring the Aurora Australis or southern lights was recorded on 35mm film by a crewmember aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery during the STS-114 mission on August 6th 2005
