Streaks of green light were captured along the earth’s Southern Hemisphere in a video as the International Space Station  hovered over the Aurora Australis or Southern Lights.

The video of the Aurora Australis was created from a sequence of still shots taken by astronauts. The images were acquired on Sept. 11 as the ISS orbit pass descended over eastern Australia, according to NASA, which released the video.

Like the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), the Aurora Australis is formed by reactions among solar wind, a flow of ions, Earth's magnetic field and collisions between ions and atmospheric atoms and molecules that cause energy releases in the form of colorful lights.
