Mr Wiseman, a crew member on the International Space Station, noticed the phenomenon over the Gulf of Thailand and, perplexed, called on the public to explain.
It turns out the explanation is far less exciting than potential alien activity: they’re fishing boats.
According to several respondents on Twitter, the most likely culprits are the local boats that use unusual green LED lights to attract squid.
Whatever they are, they’re beautiful.
