You've never seen the northern lights quite like this before.

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) on Sunday were treated to an incredible view of the aurora borealis as the sun emerged from behind the Earth.

U.S. astronaut Scott Kelly posted time-lapse footage of the sight to Twitter. 

Like Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield before him, Kelly has been using his stint aboard the ISS to share video and photography from space on social media. 

He took this latest footage on the 141st day of his year-long mission aboard the space station.
