Space Photos of the Day 06/21
June 21, 2010
This NASA image released on June 21 shows the Aurora Australis Observed from the International Space Station on May 29, 2010. This aurora image is taken during a geomagnetic storm that was most likely caused by a coronal mass ejection from the Sun on May 24. The ISS was located over the Southern Indian Ocean at an altitude of 220 miles, with the astronaut observer most likely looking towards Antarctica (not visible) and the South Pole.
