Rare View of Earth from ISS International Space Station
One Minute Video made by James Drake -

The International Space Station is the eleventh space station launched into orbit and is expected to remain in use until at least 2020.

James Drake downloaded 600 publicly available images taken by the International Space Station (ISS) and edited them and made a video.

The video gives an amazing night-time view of our planet from North America to Antarctica.

About Video –

1. Throughout the video the planet's ionosphere - a shell of electrically charged atoms and molecules - appears as a thin yellow line on the horizon.

2. Among the cities lit up 220 miles below are Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, San Fransisco and Los Angeles as the ISS travels over the west coast of North America.

3. Further south, lightning flashes over the Pacific Ocean as the space station moves over Mexico City, the Gulf of Mexico and down the west coast of South America.
