Astronaut Alexander Gerst posts amazing photo flying through aurora

European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst sent out a stunning photo of him flying through an aurora via his social media accounts on Saturday.

Gerst, who is flying high above earth at the moment wrote, "I would never have thought I would fly right through an aurora. I made a wish, just in case it's an undiscovered rule."

Approximately 6 hours before he posted the photo of the aurora, he reported his position to be somewhere over New Zealand.
