Camera Attached To A Space Station Films A Stunning Montage Of The Earth At Night
Using images from the original time-lapse sequence on the International Space Station (ISS), editor David Peterson assembled an awe-inspiring montage of what it looks like to fly over planet Earth at night. In order, the geography you are seeing here is the western coast of North and South America, the north to south area over Florida, the Bahamas and Caribbean islands, Southeast Asia and Philippine sea, Western Europe (France through Italy, Greece and Turkey). The last three auroras, the bright glows, are Aurora Austalis, going firstly over the Indian Ocean and approaching Australia, then over a wider space of the Indian Ocean, then somewhere in the Southern Hemisphere. This project was featured on NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day.
