[VIDEO] The Most Spectacular Night View of Earth

Beautiful time lapse videos are almost a dime a dozen now that cameras are quickly catching up to the skill and patience of photographers.That’s great news for star gazers like us, who could go through hundreds of those and still be filled with wonder. NASA themselves, of course, can’t help to get in on the action. They’ve delivered some of the most stunning footage of space we’ve ever seen, and rightly so.



This week, however, NASA has topped even themselves. Footage taken from the International Space Station is usually enough to create a healthy dose of awe. Knate Myers, an extremely talented photographer from Albuquerque, took things to the next level with his time lapse compilation of footage from the International Space Station. The shots were processed in Photoshop and the noise was removed to produce crystal clear motion. The video Myers put together doesn’t just show us the light of the stars, but the light here on Earth.


It helps that the whole thing is set to some stellar music, but this particular view of Earth’s surface is stunning all on its own. Everything has its glow, night and day. For the keen eye, it can even be the prettiest geography lesson.


Don’t take our word for it, though. Check out the video below and a ton of beautiful time lapse videos from Knate Myers here.
