Best video of auroras from Earth orbit

The massive storm on the sun in late January 2012 gave us the best video to date on auroras seen from Earth orbit.

Today (March 2, 2012), NASA released a video that they say is the best one yet for showing auroras from Earth orbit. The crew of the International Space Station (ISS) captured this video in late January 2012.

Isn’t it beautiful? Can you imagine what people a century ago could have thought, if they’d been able to see this video? We live in an amazing time.
