Parked in area one million miles from Earth, the Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) onboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) captured lots of of flashes of light in Earth’s higher ambiance.

Flashed of light captured by the Deep Space Climate Observatory.

In the 1990s astronomer Carl Sagan already reported this weird phenomenon which he seen in pictures from the Galileo spacecraft.

These flashes of light not solely appeared over oceans however over land as nicely and whereas scientists at first steered that the lights seen over the ocean would be the reflection of daylight off a component of the ocean the identical couldn’t be stated for the flashes seen over land.

These sort of flashes of light aren’t solely captured by the Deep Space Climate Observatory, parked in area one million miles from Earth nevertheless it appears the camera onboard the International Space Station which orbit the Earth at an altitude of between 330 and 435 km apparently additionally has the power to seize the unusual flashes of light above Earth.

Flashes of light captured by ISS live feed camera.

Streetcap1, who caught related flashes of light on the ISS live feed on May 10, 2017, stated: “What are these weird light ripple effect above Earth.”

Solar reflection off of horizontally ice particles once more or is it a phenomenon that can’t be defined?
