If you've never seen Earth in a timelapse video before, then you're in for a treat with this Vimeo production by Bruce W. Berry Jr. called "Time-Lapse | Earth." The video is a compilation of footage taken by astronauts aboard the International Space Station, and color graded, denoised, deflickered, slowed down, and stabilized by Berry, a photographer from Philadelphia.
The International Space Station obits the Earth about once every 90 minutes, Berry wrote, and the images captured by its occupants and sped up are stunning. You'll see an erupting volcano, Hurricane Irene hitting the U.S., the Northern Lights, lightning, city lights, and the Milky Way. Take a look:
Locations of the footage in the order of appearance are listed below. Footage note: The slower video represents a closer resemblance to the true speed of the International Space Station; this footage was shot at one frame per second. Clips are all marked with an *.
