WATCH the Earth like you’ve never before, from the International Space Station (ISS), 350 kilometres away from our planet’s surface.

Guillaume Juin compiled shots from five ISS expeditions to make this vivid time-lapse and the result is brilliant in every possible way. The array of colours and lights visible from space is astonishing, and the details astronauts can observe from this distance are impressive. “The little green and purple lights you can see at 1’57 are respectively fishing boats and oil platforms offshore with the big city of Bangkok nearby”, explains the filmmaker.

Give it a watch and feel your world shrink into a ball of light as the ISS spins around the earth at 28,000 kilometres per hour.
