Time exposure of the Southern Lights photographed by the crew of STS-68.

Explanation: This time exposure of the Southern Lights was photographed with a 35mm camera from 115 nautical miles above Earth by the crew of the Space Shuttle Endeavour during the Space Radar Laboratory 2 mission (STS-68) in 1994. Due to the long exposure time, stars in the background appear elongated.
