An amazing video of nighttime views from the space station

Photographs taken from the International Space Station and assembled in this video show nighttime views of our planet.

Every frame in this video is a photograph taken from the International Space Station. All credit goes to the crews on board the ISS.

People keep making these videos from ISS photography, and we keep loving them. Here’s the latest, assembled by photographer Knate Myers to a track by John Murphy (from the movie soundtrack for Sunshine) it’s a beautiful tour of nighttime passes of the Space Station over our planet. Stars, city lights, airglow, aurorae… it’s nothing you haven’t seen before, but everything worth seeing again. Watch it.
