A new image and incredible timelapse show an aurora filling the view as Boeing Starliner astronauts performed a crucial in-flight test in space on Saturday (June 15).

Starliner is currently at the International Space Station (ISS), and the crew was testing the capsule’s thrusters because problems had delayed its docking procedures; the first time issues occurred was June 6, when astronauts were on board. While that was happening, NASA astronauts floated into a nearby SpaceX Dragon capsule, also attached to the ISS, and captured a green aurora shimmering behind the Starliner’s rear end.
