I grew up seeing Northern Lights every winter, so for me they’re not a novelty—except when seen from space.
This amazing photo was taken by the European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst at the International Space Station.
I think it’s fair to say we’re living in an age quite unlike any previous one from a scientific and research perspective. It’s amazing and incredible.
We’re vacationing for a week or so. Until then, Happy Merry!
