While on an impromptu visit at Johnson Space Center in Houston Texas, one of the guys showed me this video of the ISS. It displays a time lapsed, spliced video of the ISS view of Earth. It can be found on Youtube at:
www.youtube.com...#!
For those of us that have time to view it here on ATS, here it is.


Sequences:

1. North-to-south down the western coast of North and South America.
2. North-to-south over Florida, the Bahamas and other Caribbean islands.
3. South-East Asia, approaching the Philippine Sea
4. Western Europe, from France through Italy, Greece, Turkey and the Middle East.
5. Aurora Australis, over the Indian Ocean, approaching Australia
6. Aurora Australis, over the Indian Ocean.
7. Aurora Australis, unknown location in the Southern Hemisphere.

Now here is the "Where's Waldo" question.
Can you find the fast walker?

edit on 8-4-2012 by Violater1 because: there is no fast walker

Awesome video, thanks for sharing!

Two questions...

1 - What are the green lights at the 30 second mark? I didn't see anything else like them in the video and they seem to cover a very large area. All of the other lights had an orange-yellowish tinge, but these were definitely green.

2 - Can you always see the thin green edge of the atmosphere in those types of pictures and videos? I have never seen that before.

The auroras were magnificent to see up close like that.

This is so beautiful. It almost seems fake! (Not saying it is relax).

But some things I want to know are:

What is that green hue around the atmosphere?

Are those white flashes lightning?

Seems like someone reposts this same vid every week!

Oh well, one of the few vids I don't mind seeing again...

Sorry, I didn't do a search. I was excited to see it, and when I got back to base I posted it.
Oh well, It's still awesome.
