Video of the Aurora Australis taken by the crew of Expedition 29 on board the International Space Station. This sequence of shots was taken September 18, 2011 from 11:54:56 to 12:18:33 GMT, on an ascending pass from south of Australia in the Southern Pacific Ocean to the Northern Pacific Ocean, west of Central America. The Milky Way can be clearly seen rotating slowly through the frames. The glow from the computer screens inside of the cabin is seen throughout the video near the solar panels. Moving lights can be seen several times throughout the video, and the most likely explanation is that these are satellites illuminated by the sun. But I am just guessing.
