This is a different view of our planet, a different perspective of Earth.
In this video you can watch earth from space as did the astronauts aboard International Space Station.

How this video was made

It was made using a technique called time-lapse photography. Time-lapse photography is a technique that consists in taking photos from time to time, and after that the photos are used as frames to produce a video.

What to see

Note the flashes of storms scattered in the surface of the earth and the thin line of the atmosphere around the planet. The Aurora Borealis and Australis are wonderful.
