Astronaut Barry 'Butch' Wilmore shared this amazing view of the aurora seen from the International Space Station saying that it showed "dancing, swirling, swimming, pulsing, bridging" and that it was "amazing."

The dancing lights of the aurora provide spectacular views of incoming energy and particles from the sun. Aurora are one effect of these energetic particles, which can speed out from the sun both in a steady stream called the solar wind and due to giant eruptions known as coronal mass ejections or CMEs. After a trip toward Earth that can last two to three days, the solar particles and magnetic fields cause the release of particles already trapped near Earth, which in turn trigger reactions in the upper atmosphere in which oxygen and nitrogen molecules release photons of light. The result: an aurora, and a special sight for the astronauts on board the space station.

"Science is the poetry of reality."
Introduction
I treasure astronomy, and also looking up at night.  I treasure twilight, sunsets, and connect the light with astrophysics and cosmology. I want people to remember that squeezing your toes in the sand can bring a smile to your face. I love acoustics, describing in my head the EQ of the waves crashing on the beach...
