A “transient light phenomenon” sounds like a ghostly discourse, but it is actually a beautiful phenomenon that can sometimes be seen from the International Space Station. Thomas Baskett, an ESA astronaut and current resident of the International Space Station, shared the blue light that appeared in Europe.
Transient combustion events are caused by lightning strikes in the upper atmosphere. This happened in early September Basket tweeted about this weekHe called it a “very rare event.”
The International Space Station is located to read colorful events described by many imaginary names, including gnomes, giants and giants. Photographers with sharp eyes can catch it from the ground.
“The amazing thing about this lightning is that it was only discovered by pilots a few decades ago and scientists are not convinced it really exists.” Basket said on Flickr. A few years later we can confirm that elves and orcs are very real and can affect our climate too!
The basket image represents a frame from the time interval recorded by the station. The picture will only be beautiful as the curve of the earth and the twinkling lights of Europe appear below. A quick flashing event taken at the best moment takes it to the next level.
