Flying over planet Earth: Stunning time-lapse video as seen from the International Space StationAstronauts aboard the International Space Station have taken a series of photographs flying over our planet at night. Here is the breath-taking time-lapse video

A camera on board the ISS recorded a series of images as the space station moved across the night time half of the globe.

The time-lapse video of the recording shows breathtaking views of large stretches of deep blue sea, land lit up by the lights of big cities and small towns, and storm clouds flashing with lightning.

The movie begins over the Pacific Ocean and continues over North and South America before entering daylight near Antarctica.
