Watch the Aurora Over North America

This video was taken by the crew of Expedition 30 on board the International Space Station. The sequence of shots was taken January 25, 2012 from 09:27:08 to 09:32:16 GMT, on a pass from northwestern Wisconsin to southeastern Quebec, near the Gulf of St. Lawrence. This great video of the Aurora Borealis was captured as the ISS became very close to the aurora lights over the Great Lakes and Canada.
