ISS gives awe-inspiring view of the 'Southern Lights'
Photo taken from International Space Station as it passed over the Aurora Australis.

Having a home that looks over Lake Union or Mt. Rainier is one thing. Having a home that overlooks *every* lake and mountain on the planet is another.

The International Space Station has been sharing some of those amazing views with the internet world, with one video in particular that really caught my eye.

The station made a pass over the Antarctic recently and captured the beauty of the "Aurora Australis" -- the "Southern Lights", or essentially the Southern Hemisphere counterpart to our Northern Lights.

While we're on the subject, here are some other videos NASA has posted from ISS:
