A Spatial Symphony: This International Space Station Footage Is Out Of This World!

NASA stunning footage of earth from above

Need perspective? Of course – we all do! We all need reminders that prompt us to see beyond our small bubble and have a greater view of life. Well, the following stunning video will give it to you.

Editor Dmitry Pisanko took publicly available footage from the International Space Station (ISS) and set it to the beautiful music of composer Ludovico Einaudi. The resulting four-minute timelapse video is truly breathtaking.

Pisanko picked out incredible footage from the ISS speeding through Earth’s orbit. The video makes the largest cities in the world appear to be mere blotches of light surrounded by the deep blue of the sea. We also get to see natural phenomenon like the Auroa Borealis and thunderstorms from above – breathtaking.

Videos like this are important to watch because they open our eyes to broad perspective. If you’re ever feeling bogged down in the small details of life (which happens often!) then pause, and remember the sheer wonder and beauty that surrounds us.

Watch the mesmerizing video below, and share if you are inspired by the brilliance of our world!
