Doesn’t it look like this aurora is shining green rays of light through the clouds? Image courtesy of Hugo Løhre via NASA.
Earth isn’t the only planet that has auroras. In this image of the northern region of Saturn, aurora can be seen using two different wavelengths of infrared light. The image was captured by the Cassini spacecraft. Credit:NASA/JPL/University of Arizona
We can’t forget Jupiter. Here’s a “spectacular NASA Hubble Space Telescope close-up view of an electric-blue aurora that is eerily glowing one half billion miles away on the giant planet Jupiter.” The description was too good. Photo and caption courtesy of NASA and the Hubble Heritage Team

Flying at an altitude of about 240 miles over the eastern North Atlantic, the Expedition 30 crew aboard the International Space Station photographed this nighttime scene. This view looks northeastward. Center point coordinates are 46.8 degrees north latitude and 14.3 degrees west longitude. The night lights of the cities of Ireland, in the foreground, and the United Kingdom, in the back and to the right, are contrasted by the bright sunrise in the background. The greens and purples of the Aurora Borealis are seen along the rest of the horizon. This image was taken in March 2012. Image and caption courtesy of NASA
The Expedition 32 crew on board the International Space Station, flying an altitude of approximately 240 miles, recorded a series of images of Aurora Australis, also known as the Southern Lights, in July 2012. Image and caption courtesy of NASA
