Timelapse Video Of Earth From Space: An Astronaut’s View
The video below is a breathtaking look at our little planet. Iconic imagery of Earth from space has become almost mundane, but this timelapse video of photos taken between August and October from the International Space Station is awe-inspiring. The planet looks ethereal and beautiful while simultaneously appearing to be a violent and turbulent place.
The photos were taken by astronaut Ron Garan, and show off how our planet looks today from space. From natural events like lightning storms flashing across the planet and the aurora’s covering portions of the planet in a Technicolor blanket, to the mapping of civilization via lighted arrays all over the Earth. Our world is a wonder to behold.
