No, it's not the Green Lantern.: It's Aurora Australis, or the Southern Lights, as seen from the International Space Station.

Wow, that is a nice photograph. It is also interesting that it is just green - no red colors in this one. NASA said this is in Southern Indian Ocean, but I wonder at what latitude it is appearing.

Here a some questens about space?
--> I don't know how to answer that one.

Why is space so beatiful?
--> I think it's Carl Sagan's fault.

Why doesn't the universe never end?
--> Well it probably will. We can blame entropy for that one.
