Astronauts on board the International Space Station have taken tens of thousands of auroral photographs in high temporal (1s) and spatial (≈10″/px) resolution like the one above. Their use in research though is limited as they often lack accurate orientation, scale, and timestamp information.

The goal of this project is to reconstruct these data as accurately as possible for images containing a clear starfield. The final output is then the latitude and longitude of each pixel corner at a choosable assumed emission height.

If you are a potential user of this data please contact us. Being one of the first users you can help us making sure that this project meets the requirements of the space physics community.
