Timelapse of Earth from the ISS

This video edited by Dmitry Pisanko compiles times lapses shot from the International Space Station.

There is also a collection of high resolution gifs from this video on Imgur that loop details of the 4K footage.

The ISS is impressive to behold, and the images of Earth taken from it are truly captivating. Seeing the world from this perspective is very eye-opening. The world is big and we take up such a very small part of it. 

I want to go to space, but, when I asked my wife if she’d go with me she said — with no hesitation — “Nope, nope, nope.” It seems increasingly possible that space travel is something I’ll be able to experience in my lifetime. My kids will likely find it to be commonplace.
