This Is Just Too Much: Lightning Illuminates the ISS With the Milky Way As a Backdrop

Briefly: What could be more majestic than seeing a flash of lightning on Earth reflecting on the solar panels of the International Space Station, soaring at 27,600km/h 400km above us? How about all of that, with the expanse of the Milky Way twinkling in the background. I can't imagine a view better that this one, which was captured by NASA astronaut Kjell Lindgren a few hours ago. Thank you, flight engineer Lindgren!
