Magnificent Time Lapse Video of Earth from the ISS

Watch this jaw dropping new video taken by the crew of the International Space Station as it sails above the earth. This time-lapse video sequence was put together by the film's editor, Michael Koenig, from a series of still photographs taken with a special low-light 4K camera by the crew of Expeditions 28 and 29, as they orbited Earth from August to October this year. Konig says the video has had some post production tweaking to make it flow better but there are no software gimmicks.

The videos shows a stunning view of the continents and passing time zones while capturing the incredible display of lights by the glowing auroras, as well as the flickering thunderstorms. While there are many time lapse videos of the earth from the ISS, Koeing’s effort is one of the best.
