Watch a Beautiful Timelapse Captured from Earth Orbit

Had to reblog this…Sooo Good, Sooo pretty!!!

Lights in the Dark

ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst spent nearly six months living and working in orbit aboard the ISS during Expedition 41 in 2014, and during that time he captured some amazing photos of Earth from the windows of the Station. Watch above as aurorae dance and shimmer, stars and satellites wheel overhead, and city lights shine below from the privileged vantage point of humanity’s place in space 265 miles high.

A combination of 12,500 photos taken by Alexander during his Blue Dot mission, this Ultra High Definition video shows the best our beautiful planet has to offer! (And for full effect watch in full-screen HD!)

Read more about Alexander’s adventures aboard the ISS on his blog here.
