This is not an eggcorn or even a blend, I don’t think, but just a widespread misspelling that I ran into on the astronaut video site (which is worth a glance in itself):

This video was taken during the same time period as “Aurora Borealis and eastern United States”, but with an eastern-facing camera opposted to the previous north-facing camera.

Hundreds of hits.
