    "Among the views of Earth afforded astronauts aboard the International
    Space Station (ISS), surely one of the most spectacular is of the aurora.
    These ever-shifting displays of colored ribbons, curtains, rays, and spots
    are most visible near the North (aurora borealis) and South (aurora
    australis) Poles as charged particles (ions) streaming from the Sun (the
    solar wind) interact with Earth's magnetic field."

    1/6 second at ISO 6400, EXIF data in the full image:

    Very nice. And it didn't take a $25,000 astronomical CCD camera to
    shoot it.
