Above is a 15-second time-lapse created with photos captured recently by NASA astronaut Barry “Butch” Wilmore aboard the International Space Station. It’s a short but beautiful look at a shimmering green glow of the aurora meeting the blue glow of a sunrise peeking through Earth’s atmosphere.
The images show the northeastern United States, with glimpses of Washington D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston. “#sunrise touches #aurora. All we need now are angels singing,” Wilmore writes.
