You'll want to make this video full-screen.

Earlier this week, NASA announced its new ultra-high definition (UHD) television channel by releasing this stunning compilation of aurora timelapses shot from the International Space Station.

Both the aurora borealis and their southern hemisphere counterpart, the aurora australis, are featured in gorgeous "4K" definition. 4K HD televisions have a screen resolution of more than 8 million pixels in total — four times the number in Full HD — so everything appears in crystal-clear detail.

NASA TV UHD will feature live and linear video content focusing on beautiful imagery from the U.S. space program. Currently, the channel is only available on satellite TV, but is expected to be available for online streaming soon.
