Scientists have recorded footage of a spectacular natural phenomenon that is only clearly visible from space.Filmed from high above the clouds through cameras aboard the International Space Station, this impressive form of lightning – which appears as a blue vertical column – is usually hard to see.

This particular example, which can be seen in the video below, was captured on February 26th, 2019 shooting out of a thunderstorm cell above the small Pacific island of Nauru.
