NASA Released truly breathtaking footage of Earth

video Aug 10, 2015

Editor Dmitry Pisanko of took publicly available footage from the International Space Station  (ISS) and set it to the beautiful music of composer Ludovico Einaudi.  The resulting 4-minute time-lapse video is truly breathtaking.

Pisanko picked out incredible footage from the ISS speeding through  Earth’s orbit. The video makes the largest cities in the world appear to  be mere blotches of light surrounded by the deep blue of the sea. We  also get to see natural phenomenon like the Auroa Borealis and  thunderstorms from above — breathtaking.

Videos like this are important to watch because they open our eyes to  broad perspective. If you’re ever feeling bogged down in the small  details of life (which happens often!) then pause, and remember the  sheer wonder and beauty that surrounds us.
