French astronaut Thomas Pesquet has made another incredible video. He has captured – in time-lapse – the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) from the International Space Station where he has been on a six-month mission.

The Polar Aurora (Aurora Boreal in the North Pole and Aurora Australis in the South Pole) are caused by the disturbance of the Earth’s magnetic field by the solar wind.
