ISS timelapse

Photographer Knate Myers has put together an absolutely stunning time-lapse video of the Earth as seen from the ISS, and it’s the perfect way to start your work week. Myers edited some of the shots and reduced the image noise, but the source photos all come from NASA directly.

“The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth” is an incredible resource for anyone who wants to see what these shots look like. Not only has NASA produced their own time-lapses, but when they do so, they also release all the images used in a giant zip. You can even go through their database, and simply select a frame range from any mission stretching back to 1961. If you’re willing to put in the work to find the range of photos you want, pointed at an angle you like, you could stitch together something like this, too.

Or else just put the video below on fullscreen, and wait for your coffee to kick in.
