Earth by night, taken from International Space Station. Bonkers beautiful brilliant.

Turn the lights down, click full screen and maybe tickle a little volume up to watch this stunning piece of film. Lightning storms and northern lights are just one of the highlights – look at how SMALL WE ARE. Crazy.

Time lapse sequences of photographs taken with a special low-light 4K-camera by the crew of expedition 28 & 29 onboard the International Space Station from August to October, 2011. All credit goes to them.

HD, refurbished, smoothed, retimed, de-noised, de-flickered, cut, etc.
