British Astronaut Tim Peake offered up an incredible view from the International Space Station Tuesday, tweeting amazing time lapse video of lightning striking earth. 

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 International Space Station in December as part of a six-month mission for the European Space Agency.
