We have shown you a video before of our Earth taken from the International Space Station. And today we are back again with another one. Although the subject of the last video was quite stunning, the video itself came nowhere close to doing it justice. So this time we have a better one for you.
This is a time-lapse video taken by taken by Ron Garan, Satoshi Furukawa and the crew of expeditions 28 & 29 on board the International Space Station. This video is a lot longer and covers a greater portion of the planet from various angles. We also get a stunning view of the Northern Lights and the storms in the clouds as the space station moves above the surface of the Earth.
It is highly recommended that you watch this video in HD. I would suggest turning off the sound as the music is a bit annoying. Something like the track ‘Time’ from the movie ‘Inception’ would have been perfect, but that’s just me.
For most of us this is about as close as we can get to viewing our planet from this angle. So I’m glad that people at NASA take the time out to make such videos for our viewing pleasure.
