New Delhi: British astronaut Tim Peake has shared yet another stunning picture of a glowing aurora taken from the International Space Station (ISS).

 

Peake of the European Space Agency (ESA) captured this remarkable scene of the aurora on February 23, 2016.

Earlier, in January, the astronaut posted a series of aurora images taken from space on Twitter with the caption ‘Getting a photo masterclass from Scott Kelly - magical aurora.’

 

Aurora are one effect of such energetic particles, which can speed out from the sun both in a steady stream called the solar wind and due to giant eruptions known as coronal mass ejections or CMEs.
