NASA Captures Footage of South Pole During Aurora, Makes a GIF By Robert T. Gonzalez | io9

Ever seen an aurora? Ever seen an aurora from space? You have now.
Via the usagov tumblr:
This is an animation of the Aurora Australis (Southern Lights), eight days after a record-setting solar flare sent a shower of charged particles towards Earth. From Earth, this glowing ring would appear as a curtain of light shimmering across the night sky. Image captured by NASA IMAGE satellite courtesy of NASA Space Place.

A picture of earth through time

These images were collected as part of an ongoing joint mission between the USGS and NASA called Landsat. Their satellites have been observing earth from space since the 1970s.

Google started working with the USGS in 2009 to make this historic archive of earth imagery available online. The goal; to inform the global community’s thinking about how we live on our planet and the policies that will guide us in the future.
