Washington State may be beautiful in person, but it’s surely something else from up above. Take a look at these stunning videos of just how mesmerizing the Pacific Northwest is from the International Space Station (ISS).
WATCH: The Aurora Borealis light show begins over Canada, then passes southeast into North America, specifically over Vancouver Island and Washington state. Crews continue through the Rocky Mountains, where Denver, Colorado can be easily spotted as a bright cluster of lights. Then, the ISS passes through Dallas, Texas and Houston, Texas, and south of Louisiana before ending in the Caribbean Sea.
WATCH: Stunning views of the Milky Way as crews pass over Africa, capturing lighting storms and ending in southeast Madagascar.
WATCH: Crews aboard the ISS traveled northeast, facing the camera towards the North Pole and focusing on the Aurora Borealis light show. The first land shot shows the snow-covered Coast and Rocky Mountains, along with Vancouver and Seattle before capturing Canada under the snow.
WATCH: The focus is on the border of Canada and Washington state, near Vancouver Island to southern Alberta, near Calgary. The Aurora Borealis light show is in full swing.
