The International Space Station passed over Houston, Texas a few days ago. While there, astronaut Commander Reid Wiseman (USN) made this Vine video showing a thunderstorm over the city.
It felt like I could reach out and touch it…moving like a snake through the sky. pic.twitter.com/wx7GEdvjXt— Reid Wiseman (@astro_reid) June 28, 2014
He also tweeted out this picture of an aurora. Wiseman described it so poetically.
You can see more photos from Wiseman here. He'll be up there, getting a scenic tour of Earth, until November.
