Assembled from photographic sequences captured last April and May, the video shows Earth from an orbital perspective from the ISS. Watch as Continents pass in minutes. Glories like the northern lights and a solar eclipse fit in their entirety within one person's sight.
Each clip represents a few minutes of flight time, with photographs taken at a rate of roughly once per second. The videos are kept at NASA's Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth site, where high-resolution versions can also be found.
It's a beautiful tour of nighttime passes of the Space Station over our planet. Stars, city lights, airglow, aurorae… it's nothing you haven't seen before, but everything worth seeing again.
If you are the sort of person who likes looking out of airplane windows, watching landscapes pass and Earth unfold, then see these videos from the International Space Station.
Assembled by photographer Knate Myers to a track by John Murphy (from the movie soundtrack for Sunshine). Every frame in this video is a photograph taken from the International Space Station. All credit goes to the crews on board the ISS.
I removed noise and edited some shots in photoshop. Compiled and arranged in Sony Vegas.
Music by John Murphy - Sunshine (Adagio In D Minor)
