Earth – Fragile Beauty

by Jay Kimball on 13 November 2011

Check out this stunning time-lapse video of the planet, recorded by the crew of the International Space Station as they orbited earth. Michael König edited video from the Crew Earth Observations team taken onboard the International Space Station.

Note the chain lightning and magical Aurora Borealis playing across the paper thin atmosphere. The images are crystal clear, and convey a deep sense of awe and beauty. I can’t help but marvel…

  • Amazing!  A beautiful planet worth fighting for!

  • Thanks Christine. Totally agree. The images are stunning, and I am always amazed at how thin the atmosphere is – just a wisp. Like it could just blow away like a candle on a cake, if we don’t take care.
