NASA Releases Stunning Compilation of 4K Aurora Footage from Space



Watching the aurora borealis dance above your head is a transformative human experience that thousands capture from places like Norway and the Canadian Rockies every year. But watching it dance beneath your feet? That’s an experience only a fortunate few will ever get to have.

Fortunately for those of us who will never get to spend any time on the International Space Station, NASA is sharing this amazing experience with us in 4K footage that will leave your jaw slack and your jealousy raging.

5 minutes of 4K timelapse footage of the aurora borealis captured from above:

The video was produced in collaboration with video delivery company Harmonic, and it’s meant to advertise the launch of the NASA UHD TV channel, which offers NASA TV content in ultra high definition.

Well… mission accomplished. Now excuse us while we go pick our jaws up off the floor.
