NASA has released a stunning image of the Southern Lights or aurora., along with their polar patterns. The image was taken from the International Space Station as it traveled 434 kilometers (270 miles) in orbit well above the Indian Ocean near Antarctica.
The stunning views from the orbital outpost were photographed by NASA astronaut Bob Hines, who is presently traveling on the International Space Station (ISS).
There are signs of auroras on other planets other than Earth. For instance, Jupitarhas an atmosphere and a magnetic field, which makes it possible for the planet to have that same kind of fractal light skirting that Earth’s auroras can sometimes display.
