First meteor shower of 2020 seen in stunning NASA image from space

In the midst of the Quadrantid meteor shower, NASA astronaut Christina Koch captured a stunning image of several meteors zooming through the atmosphere.

"Can you see shooting stars from space? Turns out, yes!" wrote Koch on Twitter, where she posted the image. "The first meteor shower of the decade and we were lucky enough to catch it from the @Space_Station along with the northern lights. This is a composite image of a few of the #quadrantids as they blazed into the atmosphere."

In the distance, bright green auroras can be seen lighting up the dark sky, as Space.com reports.
