NASA released footage on Sunday of the Aurora Borealis as seen from outer space, and it is stunning.


Captured from the International Space Station, the footage shows the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) and Aurora Australis (Southern Lights) in ultra-high definition video. The majestic light display occurs "when electrically charged electrons and protons in the Earth's magnetic field collide with neutral atoms in the upper atmosphere," NASA wrote on YouTube.
