Aurora Borealis Over Canada

Amazing video of a night pass by the International Space Station (ISS) over Canada.
Visible are the cities of Vancouver and Seattle, the Rocky Mountains and the aurora borealis (or northern lights).
The images were taken on February 4. The snowy Canadian landscape was lit by a near Full Moon. Look for the Manicougan Crater in Quebec near the end of the video. This and other videos as well as the individual images which make up the video are available here.
