What Does it Feel Like to Fly Over an Aurora?

As shared by Joseph on Google+.

Following on from What Does it Feel Like to Fly Over Planet Earth? here's another time-lapse video from the crew of the International Space Station. The shots were taken on September 17th 2011 between 17:22:27 and 17:45:12 GMT. They show a view from above an example of one of the most stunning natural phenomena that can be seen with the naked eye, an aurora. This one's an aurora Australis, which means it's a Southern hemisphere aurora. During the video, the ISS passes over an area just south of Madagascar and ends up just north of Australia, over the Indian Ocean. Enjoy!
