In the 9-second long clip, one can see dark clouds above Earth and violent flashes of lightning, lighting up the night skies at regular intervals. This video was taken from 400 kms above Earth.
Ever since the video was shared on Twitter, it has gone viral. After seeing the video, people were left in 'awe' on social media.
