Video: Time Lapse of Earth from the International Space Station
Ride along with the ISS as its camera skims (relatively speaking) across the surface of the earth
It’s no secret how much we love images that come from space. Everything from satellite pictures of huge natural events to playful self portraits taken by astronauts, they’re all computer background material. That’s why we like this video so much. It takes a bunch of fantastic images and stitches them together into a beautiful sequence perfect for helping to shake off the monday morning cobwebs.
The video’s description illustrates the path the camera takes as it swings over the earth, but you’ll probably end up watching it three times before you even bother trying to find out what you’re looking at.
