A space image enthusiast who goes by the Vimeo user name of Joan has recently uploaded a high-resolution, time-lapse video that was put together from a large number of images sent back to Earth from aboard the International Space Station. This is definitely worthy of your attention.
According to the author, the images that were compiled for this video were produced by astronauts form Expedition 28, 29, 30 and 31 aboard the ISS. All images were gathered from the NASA Johnson Space Center's (JSC) Image Science and Analysis Laboratory.
Joan then stitched all the high-resolution images together, to create a 5-and-a-half minute video clip. This is not the first time that such a clip was compiled, but this one stands out from the rest through its resolution, length and widescreen frame.
See the clip above, and then let me know what you think of it. Also notice the storms the ISS flies over, and the lightning strikes that are visible within. The numerous islands of light are our cities.
