A Day on Earth (as Seen From Space)

Dur­ing his time on the Inter­na­tion­al Space Sta­tion, astro­naut Don Pet­tit trained his cam­era on plan­et Earth, and had it take a pho­to once every 15 sec­onds. The time lapse video above shows you Earth from day to night, com­plete with a sun­set, a moon­rise and the north­ern lights. Over­all, Pet­tit took 85 time-lapsed videos of Earth, and at least eight of them appear on this YouTube playlist.
