Earth From Space

This stunning timelapse photography of Earth, filmed from the International Space Station at five miles per second and 240 miles up above our heads, is well worth giving just a few minutes of your time to today- and to fill you with just a little bit of awe and wonder. The sunrise at 2.04 is breathtaking (and watch out for the shots of astronaut Don Petitt at the end). Well done David Peterson. I’d choose a different soundtrack but perhaps that’s just me.


Everything was going so well until Sandra Bullock and George Clooney turned up…
