Astronaut captures video of lightning storm from space

Reid Wiseman, right, and colleagues aboard the International Space Station

You've never seen a thunderstorm quite like this.

Astronaut Reid Wiseman -- known on Twitter as @astro_reid -- captured this Vine video from the International Space Station showing dramatic flashes of lightning over Houston.

Wiseman is serving as flight engineer aboard the International Space Station for Expedition 41, according to his NASA biography.

He launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on May 29.

Since then, he's been tweeting about experiments aboard the space station, the World Cup and views of the world from space.
