European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Pesci posted on Twitter images of the aurora borealis, which appeared thanks to an unusual solar flare.
“The aurora borealis are back! Our orbits and solar winds have allowed us to watch it again, and no one will be disappointed,” he wrote in a post accompanying the video.
The astronaut is currently on the International Space Station. Space Pesci began on April 23 this year. It was delivered to the station by a reusable SpaceX Crew-2 spacecraft.
