Video: Flying Over Planet Earth

The International Space Station flies over the planet eight times a day. The handful of humans occupying the craft have the best views of everything our world has to offer. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to soar over the planet like Superman?

In this amazing time-lapse video, us earth-bound humans can see what it looks like to look down on Earth as the ISS flies over the shadowed size of the planet.

You see the lights of cities, the tops of clouds, and the sparkling flashes of lightning in thunderstorms. The creme de la creme is the sunrise towards the end. Have a look at our beautiful planet and see what’s it’s like to be a “Rocket Man.”
