Image Caption: Aurora over the Southern Hemisphere. The spacecraft's location when this view was shot was over a point halfway between Australia and the Antarctic continent. There are moonlit clouds on earth. The blue-green band and the tall red rays are aurora. The brownish band parallel to the earth's horizon is a luminescence of the atmosphere itself and is referred to as airglow.
