File it under “Things What Are Awesome”

In case you missed it, an Expedition 23 Astronaut aboard the International Space Station snapped a picture of the aurora australis.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen a shot of this from above before, and it’s even more awesome than viewing it from the ground.  It’s so obvious from there that it’s a very real thing snaking around the curves of the earth.

Awesome.  (h/t: Bad Astronomy)
