Rare Red Aurora Light Captured From Space

Astronaut Scott Kelly stationed aboard the International Space Station,  has captured spectral and beautiful photograph of a rare red aurora from 400km above Earth’s atmosphere.
Kelly posted the material, on his Twitter account, wowing space enthusiasts and casual observers alike.

The astronaut exclaimed that the “red curtain” of the rare red aurora over earth was “Spectacular!” noting that he’d never seen this before,” and adding the next day that “I don’t think I will ever see another quite like you again.”

Scott Kelly posted the mesmerizing video of the phenomenon.

An aurora is a natural light display in the sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions. Auroras are caused by cosmic rays, solar, wind and the magnetospheric plasma interacting with the upper atmosphere.
