Bushfires as seen from space

This video shows Australian bushfires as photographed from the International Space Station in mid-September, 2011. The first part of the video captures views of the aurora australis, or “southern lights”. The bushfires begin appearing at 28 seconds.

The video is most impressive if you click on YouTube, then choose 1080p and full screen.
