During his time on the International Space Station, astronaut Don Pettit captured what few of us terrestrials will ever get to see with our own eyes: the Earth from orbit. It's a breathtaking sight, and Pettit was good enough to turn his snaps into a gorgeous time-lapse.
It's amazing the kind of diversity you see in the vid. Everything from the big blue oceans to the lights of cities at night to what appears to be the Northern Lights is all there.
