NASA videos of Seattle, Milky Way from space

The Washington State is a breath-taking stretch of land, but when seen from above, outer space and in the clouds, it presents a more scenic view of the lush expanse. NASA has provided such remarkable videos of the picturesque Pacific Northwest, and we must admit, the view from the International Space Station (ISS) truly is mesmerizing!

The Aurora Borealis light show is all set to begin over Canada, from where it will travel southeast, towards North America, primarily over the Vancouver Island, and the Washington State. Crew members from the Space Station travel through the Rocky Mountains, where Denver and Colorado can be easily pointed out and identified from the bright cluster of shimmery lights. From there, the International Space Station makes its journey through Dallas, Texas, and Houston, towards southern Louisiana, before ending their journey in the Caribbean Sea.

As the crew members make their journey from the vast expanse of Africa, they captured gorgeous images of the Milky Way, along with stunning images of lightning storms and ending towards Southeast Madagascar.

Crew members from the International Space Station journey towards the northeast, while the camera is facing the North Pole, and focuses on the breath-taking beauty of the Aurora Borealis light show. The very first shot of land reveals that picturesque snow-pilled Coast, and the splendour of the Rocky Mountains, alongside Vancouver, and Seattle, before capturing the snow-covered wild expanse of Canada.

In this particular video, you can view the focus on the border of Canada and Washington State, adjacent to Vancouver Island, towards southern Alberta, near Calgary. The spectacular light show of the Aurora Borealis is at its most stunning best.

If you want to enjoy looking at more stunning videos and images taken by the crew members of the International Space Station, you can use the clickable map by NASA, which captures all the beauty, from light shows that occur across the globe, to scenic vistas from remote regions and countries of the world.
