Northern lights as seen from transatlantic flight

Timelapse video captures northern lights on transatlantic flight

A passenger on board a transatlantic flight from San Francisco to Paris has captured a remarkable timelapse video of the northern lights, or the aurora borealis. During his eleven hour flight he captured 2,459 images, roughly one every two miles, using a Canon 5D Mark II and a tripod, and stitched them together afterward to produce this masterpiece.

Image of the International Space Station as it orbits sky over Ireland

With clear skies forecast for this week across much of Ireland an excellent opportunity presents itself for amateur astronomers to catch a glimpse of the International Space Station as it orbits earth and passes over Ireland. One such sighting opportunity occurred at 19:53 this evening, and although slightly unprepared, I managed to capture this light trail as the space station hurtled past.
