Time lapse: Earth from above

James Drake downloaded 600 photos from the International Space Station, then stitched them together to create this fly-over. Check it out in fullscreen HD & watch for the lightning storms.

    Wow the lightning storms from 0:22 onwards were amazing! I also really loved the lights from all the cities as the satelite flew over them.

    A truly impressive video!
