New stunning videos of the Aurora Borealis shown from space, have been released by Nasa.

The images were captured from the International Space Station in orbit.

Several of the videos show the green, red and purple light show of the Northern Lights, shimmering over North America. One shows a moving star field and another the city lights of the US and Canada.

The images were captured by the crew of Expedition 30 on board the ISS, between January 25 and February 26 this year.

The Aurora Borealis can be seen above Earth's northernmost and southernmost regions.

The auroral displays are associated with the solar wind - electrically charged particles continuously spewing outward from the sun. Earth's magnetic field lines reach far out into space as they store energy from the solar wind.
