Movies

These QuickTime movies (640x480) are time-lapse playbacks from the VIS Earth Camera on the Polar spacecraft. The auroral images are displayed as if the observer had been in a stationary orbit above a particular point on Earth.

These two images (640x480 GIF) are with the point of view of the observer centered over the North American continent. The aurora are represented in false colors with the brighter colors corresponding to the more intense optical UV emissions.
