flying over the earth

here is a timelapse video taken from the international space station as it travels around the earth. i think the lightning looks amazing as does the edge of the atmosphere floating lightly above the surface.

Hello Amanda
Very nice.
Can really see how the light pollution on earth prevents us from seeing a clear dark sky above from ones overly lighted cities.
Peace and Clear Skies!

These timelapses show how low the ISS is. It's no Gemini. Will our species ever have the means to create timelapses from the moon? Probably not.
