NASA Captures Footage of South Pole During Aurora, Makes a GIF By Robert T. Gonzalez | io9

Ever seen an aurora? Ever seen an aurora from space? You have now.
Via the usagov tumblr:
This is an animation of the Aurora Australis (Southern Lights), eight days after a record-setting solar flare sent a shower of charged particles towards Earth. From Earth, this glowing ring would appear as a curtain of light shimmering across the night sky. Image captured by NASA IMAGE satellite courtesy of NASA Space Place.
