Editor's note: hello, Flickr friends! I'm just amazed at the colors in this image -- hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Posted to the NASA Views Earth at Night photoset: www.flickr.com/photos/28634332@N05/sets/72157625188331491/ One of the Expedition 30 crew members photographed this nighttime scene while the International Space Station was flying at an altitude approximately 240 miles over the eastern North Atlantic. The view looks northeastward. Center point coordinates are 46.8 degrees north latitude and 14.3 degrees west longitude. The night lights of the cities of Ireland, in the foreground, and the United Kingdom, in the back and to the right, are contrasted by the bright sunrise in the background. The greens and purples of the Aurora Borealis are seen along the rest of the horizon. Image credit: NASA Original image: spaceflight.nasa.gov/gallery/images/station/crew-30/html/...

La station spatiale internationale a définitivement une vue spectaculaire de la Terre. Les astronautes postés sur place ont fait bien des jaloux en publiant sur le réseau social Vine une vidéo qui montre une aurore boréale et un lever de soleil simultanés.

"Il ne manque plus que des anges qui chantent", indiquait la station spatiale internationale dans la légende accompagnant la vidéo.
