Tim Peake sees the city lights of his capital city burning bright from the International Space Station last night. He tweeted: “London midnight Saturday – I’d rather be up here…but only just!!”
NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and ESA astronaut Tim Peake shared a series of aurora photographs taken from the International Space Station on 20 January 2016. The dancing lights of the aurora provide spectacular views on the ground, but also capture the imagination of scientists who study incoming energy and particles from the Sun.
