A photographer who managed to photograph the Northern Lights from space and the stunning results are being widely shared on social media.
A Daily Mail report said that Nate Luebbe travelled to Fairbanks in Alaska, where he attached a camera to a weather balloon and launched it into the stratosphere.

He also shared a video of the recording on his Twitter account. “The Aurora Borealis from 65,000’ under a weather balloon”, he wrote while sharing the video. Luebbe and his team captured the original footage back in September.
