Photography Mesmerizing Time-Lapse Photos from Space

From Flavorwire

I particularly like seeing the lightning flashes from above

“The crew from several expeditions on-board the International Space Station shot a series of stunning images that have been edited into a mesmerizing time-lapse video by Michael König. The progression shows the crew’s surreal orbit over earth at approximately 350 kilometers, and it’s truly breathtaking. The night flight takes you across Eastern Europe to Southeastern Asia, above Central Africa and the Middle East, and beyond. Music from Jan Jelinek (“Do Dekor”) helps set the mood, but the photographs definitely speak for themselves. Drop into sweet infinity below.”
