Amazing !! Time lapse footage of the Earth as seen from the ISS


Time lapse footage of the Earth

We can travel through whole world, we can see any part on this earth but it is not easy for us to fly over the earth at night. But this amazing video takes you on the tour of earth while flying over it. The shots in this video are taken on the International Space Station (ISS) via NASA.

Lovely music has been used as background music “Two Steps From Hell” by Freedom Fighters musical project of producer Shahaf Efrat and this soundtrack almost matches the awe and wonder we feel when we see our home from above. The earth looks so beautiful in the night. There are spectacular Aurora Austral-is sequences shown in this video. The sequences are :

1. North to south down the western coast of North and South America.
2. North to south over Florida, the Bahamas and other Caribbean islands.
3. South-East Asia, approaching the Philippine Sea.
4. Western Europe, from France through Italy, Greece, Turkey and the Middle East.
5. Aurora Australis, over the Indian Ocean, approaching Australia.
6. Aurora Australis, over the Indian Ocean.
7. Aurora Australis, unknown location in the Southern Hemisphere.

You can see clouds, yellow lights, green lights and some other lights blinking. I am not sure what all these blinking lights are in actual. But it looks so wonderful. Earth is the third planet from the sun and also known as Blue Planet. It is the densest and fifth-largest of the eight planets in the solar system. This video shows the magic of life, banned into the tiny layers of oxygen. I personally like the lightning part in this video. Some people say it is a fake video. So to make it clear here is an explanation from the NASA itself -: Many wonders are visible when flying over the Earth at night. A compilation of such visual spectacles was captured recently from the International Space Station and set to rousing music. Passing below are white clouds, orange city lights, lightning flashes in thunderstorms and dark blue seas. On the horizon is the golden haze of Earth’s thin atmosphere, frequently decorated by dancing auroras as the video progresses. The green parts of auroras typically remain below the space station, but the station flies right through the red and purple auroral peaks. Solar panels of the ISS are seen around the frame edges. The ominous wave of approaching brightness at the end of each sequence is just the dawn of the sunlit half of Earth, a dawn that occurs every 90 minutes.

Don’t think it is real or fake, just enjoy the video and feels the wonder. Thanks for watching this amazing video and i hope you like it and i am sure science will keep on giving us more amazing stuff. And truly hats off to those brave human beings who fly alone in the night to take us to the stars.
