Stunning Aurora Borealis As Seen From Space In NASA's New 4K Video

Taken from the International Space Station, the five-minute time-lapse video showed the green light as it washes over the Antarctic skies in the Southern Hemisphere.
In the video, NASA explained that the occurrence of auroras happen secondary to the collision of electrons and protons with neutral atoms in the upper atmosphere.
The video also showed the Tasmanian sky turn to shades of green and purple as the Aurora Australis lit up the suburban streets.

These northern dancing lights remain a puzzle to many scientists - how the sun's particles interact with Earth's atmosphere remains a mystery.
