_ This Night-Time Photo was taken by one of the ISS Expedition 30 Crew Members while the Space Station was flying 390 Kilometers over the North Atlantic Ocean. The view looks north-eastward as the Station passed over Europe. The City Lights of of Ireland are in the foreground and the illuminated cities of the United Kingdom can be seen in the back and to the right. As the Station moved towards Orbital Sunrise, Earth’s Atmosphere gives a colorful impression showing its different layers as light passes through. Also, a star-filled sky is featured in the still image. The Aurora Borealis is also visible in the picture. The green color is caused by Oxygen Emissions while blue and purple are caused by Nitrogen Atoms. The faint orange/gold line of airglow to the right is caused by ultraviolet radiation exciting gas molecules in the upper portion of the atmosphere. The Photo was taken on March 28, 2012.
