Coolest Aurora Pic Ever. Credit: Soichi Noguchi

Soichi Noguchi snapped one of the coolest aurora images I can remember seeing and posted it today via Twitter.  However, if the green glow doesn’t resemble the classic Aurora Borealis images you’re used to seeing over Alaska, take heart – there’s a reason:

Location, location, location.

Soichi is a Japanese Astronaut, and the picture was taken as he peered through a porthole of the International Space Station while flying through an aurora by moonlight.

It’s when we get these sorts of images that the 21st Century truly gets to live up to its name.

Just passing it forward.
