It seems as if these is a new time laspse video of Earth shot by the International Space Station released each week. Some are better than others but I still watch them all. It’s transfixing. Of all the time lapse videos I’ve seen, probably dozens if not more, this one is hands down the best. It was shot by the crew of expeditions 28 & 29 onboard the International Space Station from August to October, 2011, at an altitude of around 350 km. That’s about 30 times the altitude airplanes cruise at. It is a view that few of us will ever see but everyone can appreciate. What makes this video great is that it was shot in crystal clear HD, and also refurbished, smoothed, retimed, denoised, deflickered, cut, etc. Shooting locations in order of appearance: 1. Aurora Borealis Pass over the United States at Night 2. Aurora Borealis and eastern United States at Night 3. Aurora Australis from Madagascar to southwest of Australia 4. Aurora Australis south of Australia 5. Northwest coast of United States to Central South America at Night 6. Aurora Australis from the Southern to the Northern Pacific Ocean 7. Halfway around the World 8. Night Pass more »
