Amazing Time-Lapse Video Of Earth From The Space Station

This breathtaking time-lapse video is called Earth Illuminated and is made from images of the earth taken by astronauts from the International Space Station.

What’s really striking to see is just how luminous the earth is- glowing with the light from cities as well as many natural phenomena like storms, aurorae and the light produced by various forms of chemical processes, called air-glow.
