ISS Expedition 59/60 astronaut Nick Hague tweeted:
Sporting our red, white, and blue on @Space_Station!🇺🇸 Planning a “cookout” tonight. Beef patties, corn, blueberry cobbler, and lemonade are all on the menu - tasty and ready in under 15 minutes. Hoping to catch some fireworks out the window later. Happy #4thofJuly from space!
Question: Can Astronauts really see firework displays from space? Have astronauts reported seeing firework displays from space in the past?
It doesn't have to be ISS or NASA, anyone will do as long as it's from space.
Other Earth-related things seen from space:
- What caused this bright light from the ground at night seen from the ISS?
- What is this huge, red, blinking light structure on Earth seen from the ISS in this video?
- Has anyone in space seen or photographed a simple laser pointer from Earth?
- Can ISS astronauts see the lava from the Kilauea volcano at night?
- Has an astronaut ever seen pixies, ELVEs, sprites or blue jets (without a camera)?
- and of course this from here (see this question)
