View from the ISS at Night

TMV offers up an absolutely astonishing piece of artistry, courtesy of the International Space Station and a photographic artist named Knate Myers.  The clip has been circulating for a couple of weeks but it’s so good that I wanted to make sure everyone caught it.

Click here to view.  Just under four minutes and well worth it.

“We catch a glimpse of a huge swirl of clouds out the window over the middle of the Pacific Ocean, or the boot of Italy jutting down into the Mediterranean, or the brilliant blue coral reefs of the Caribbean strutting their beauty before the stars. And…we experienced those uniquely human qualities: awe, curiosity, wonder, joy, amazement.”

– Russell L. Schweickart, Apollo Astronaut (“The Home Planet”)
