One of the Best Time-Lapsed Videos of Earth From Space Yet


Unlike the time-lapsed video over Earth we posted a couple months ago, this one seems even closer to the surface giving you an even more spectacular visual experience.

Take a ride:


As Gawker points out, there is so much flying by in this video that you might not know quite what to focus on: the green film that is the Aurora Borealis and Aurora Australis; the thin yellow line over Earth is the ionosphere; or the webs of light are illuminated cities, to name a few. Check out the full list of locations in order of appearance here.

The video was created from 18 time-lapsed photos from August to October 2011 taken 240 miles up from the International Space Station and put together by  Michael König.
