International Space Station Imagery
Aurora Australis

ISS037-E-022828 (30 Oct. 2013) --- This isn't someone's frame grab of a decorative Halloween scene, although it was photographed on Halloween eve. It is actually a picture of the Aurora Australis or Southern Lights, photographed by one of the Expedition 37 crew members on the International Space Station as the orbital complex flew over Tasmania on Oct. 30. The human-produced hardware in the picture is part of the outpost's robotic arm system.
