Astronauts Scott Kelly and Tim Peake have been posting pictures of the Earth from the International Space Station, but their most recent photos are more stunning than usual.

Photos posted on Kelly's Facebook page show the astronauts' views of the Aurora Borealis. The extraordinary pictures were said to be taken while Kelly taught Peake how to use his Nikon camera. 

The natural light display they captured happens when a burst of the sun's gas and magnetic field causes a solar wind -- the stream of energy specks from the sun.

That stream hits the Earth's atmosphere and creates the Northern Lights' effect.

A year after the death of her husband, Summers reached out to Laura Gordillo, the photographer who took pictures of the couple for their last wedding anniversary together.

According to Gordillo’s Facebook, Summers wanted to take pictures with her son in the same places she had taken photos with her late husband months before. She even planned to match the color schemes in the two shoots.

From there, Gordillo created a custom image of Summers and her son with her late husband, who was edited into the photo.

Gordillo said Summers loved the finished product and couldn’t stop crying.

Taurean, who was a paramedic, was on a plane that was transferring a patient to a caner center in Phoenix. It crashed in Las Creces, killing everyone on board.

“My heart broke to see what could have been, but at the same time, I was so happy to execute such a beautiful image for Stephanie and her son,” Gordillow wrote.

Gordillo has since received numerous requests to create similar photos with families and their deceased loved ones.

How a photojournalist got this skyline lightning shot

Behind the Lens, A Photographer's Story-- AJC Photojournalist Ben Gray talks about his shot of lightning over Midtown Atlanta.As storms rolled into Atlanta on Tuesday evening, I headed up the Downtown Connector (highway network system) on my way to cover a lightning-strike fire in Acworth, about 40 minutes north of Atlanta. Rain started pouring down, lightning lit the sky and traffic slowed to a crawl. I immediately realized there was no sense in trying to make my way to Acworth when I was in the middle of the storm already. 

Equipment: Canon 1Dx camera, 16-35mm f2.8 lens zoomed to 35mm, 13 sec, f/7.1, ISO 125I pulled off at 17th Street and made my way to a parking deck, where I knew I would have protection from rain and lightning while also having a good view of the Midtown skyline. I jumped out, with my camera in hand and quickly adjusted the ISO and aperture settings for a long exposure while leaving the camera on the aperture priority setting. I didn’t have a tripod with me, so I balanced the camera on the wall of the parking deck, put my left hand under the lens to raise it up a little and hit the shutter button. To my amazement, the sky lit up with a tremendous bolt of lightning during the very first 13-second exposure. After sending the photo for use on this AJC story, I went back to shooting, but none of the photos even came close to that first frame.
