Here's a vid from APOD of the Earth at night from the ISS with load of aurora.

Very nice vid, I like the way you can see the atmosphere layers. Was looking for the UK but couldn't even make out the continents.

I spotted Italy as the ISS travels east accross the Med and over the middle east.

Great video, Snowcrash. Earth, night, aurora, music, all this looks like a dream. :thumbsup:

I must try to buy a ticket for an ISS ride...

A ride to and on the ISS sound like epic fun GT40, thanks for the invite.
I may have to wait till they drop the ticket price by a few million  :(
