On Wednesday, one of the international space stations astronauts took a photograph showing a bright orange light that surrounds the horizon of the Earth. This orange light is known as the glow of the highest layers of atmospheric radiation.
This glow is created when atmospheric molecules are loaded with sunlight and solar radiation. As the atoms reach the radiation, they begin to move faster and when they collide, they release energy in the form of light. The result is glittering above the earth's horizon.
The picture is taken from Australia and at the forefront is part of a cosmic position, but in the background there are orange glitter, millions of stars and earth's clouds.
This brilliance allowed scientists to see how the Earth's atmosphere works, that is, particles that come from space on earth, interact with Earth's atmosphere.
