An astronaut has filmed amazing footage of dozens of lightning strikes hitting the Earth from his rare view onboard the International Space Station.
Randy Bresnik captured the scene across China, Korea and Japan from what he calls "our favourite window" on the ISS.
The incredible time-laspe video taken at night shows the "Spectacle of lightning strikes followed by alluring city lights and fishing boats around the Sea of Japan".
It is not the first time Randy, who has been in space since July, has posted images and video from on board.
