This is incredible — the shimmering green aurora almost reaches up and touches the International Space Station in this latest video released by the NASA Crew Earth Observations website. The sequence of shots to create this video was taken by the crew of Expedition 30 on January 25, 2012 from 09:27:08 to 09:32:16 GMT, on a pass from northwestern Wisconsin to southeastern Quebec, near the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

Below are more views of the aurora as the ISS passes over the Pacific Ocean to the west coast of the US, and then an additional video shows a pass over the US to the Atlantic Ocean.

Just beautiful.

The sequence of shots was taken February 8, 2012 from 10:32:23 to 10:36:25 GMT, on a pass from the North Pacific Ocean, south of Alaska, to the northwest corner of the United States

This video sequence was taken taken February 3, 2012 from 05:46:17 to 05:53:28 GMT, on a pass from southeastern Minnesota to the Atlantic Ocean, east of Newfoundland and Labrador.

I think that might be Manicouagan Crater in Quebec: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manicougan_Crater

TRICKERIES! These are not from the latest solar flare. They are from late jan. to early feb. Why do you mislead us so?
