I'm not sure how old this video is, but I found it on sailinaganarchy.com a few days ago at work, and as I watched it tens of times, I thought I'd pass it on in case anyone hasn't seen. I think it's pretty amazing.

The Great Wall is at 3:47, and I forget when, but there's a part where you can see the moons reflection trailing across the water. It's also kind of neat to watch the panels on the station rotating for optimum solar.

Enjoy if you haven't already:

Edit, New vid:
Here's a new one of the SS getting a video of the comet Lovejoy. Only the first 45 seconds or so, the rest is the commander talking which I can't even hear at work.

Very cool. Why does the atmosphere have that green, swirling misty-look?

Science! Smiley: schooled

It's an aurora, which is what appears when high energy particles generated from the sun collide with our magnetic field and are deflected off into space. Otherwise, they'd bombard earth, pretty much making life (at least as we understand it) impossible.

Seen from Earth in the Northern hemisphere as the aurora borealis.

I believe there's a different term below the equator but the maps put the US on top specifically so I don't have to know/care about those things.

Probably the best part about living in the northern part of the hemisphere is the northern lights. It's quite the spectacle on a nice clear winter night.

Wow.

Took me a few seconds to figure out what those blueish-white flashes were. And I never realized the Great Wall was made out of neon!

Now, I know what the aurora is but there was a greenish shell over the entire planet. Is that just more interaction of a certain layer of the atmosphere?

Oh, cool. stupid question, I guess, but I don't really know anything about auroras. I had just assumed is was only something we saw from earth.

Kind of. It's where the magnetosphere gets stretched out away from the Sun (kind of like a comet's tail). Then it snaps back and you get the auroras where the high energy particles interfere with the upper atmosphere.

I really want to see them in person, I hear it's quite spectacular.


They're called Aurora Australis, in the southern hemisphere for the record. Boreal means northern in Greek or Latin and Austra means Southern. I think.

If history has taught us anything, it's that no one cares about the Southern hemisphere.

It is, really. I miss seeing Northern Lights on a regular basis.

As opposed to the Aurora Arborealis which is just Christmas lights.
