WATCH: Dazzling video of lightning strikes from space

British astronaut Tim Peake offered up an incredible view from the International Space Station on Tuesday, tweeting amazing images of lighting striking earth in a dramatic time lapse video.

Peake, who recently became the first astronaut representing Britain to carry out a space walk, captured the dazzling storms as they crossed Europe and Africa.

The footage shows a series of lightning bolts striking earth with a view that is truly out of this world.

Peake blasted off to the ISS as part of a six-month mission for the European Space Agency in December.
