Astronauts aboard the International Space Station got a front-row seat to some rare atmospheric “fireworks.”

Specifically, the spacecraft was carrying “old equipment and household waste, or everything the experts have decided to toss from the station,” Roscosmos cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko told Russian media outlet TASS.
