Images with a time lapse of 2 days, view of our planet Earth from space, on the night side. Another great thing to see are the majestic polar auroras, which give the planet an “invisible ceiling” effect, and finally, the “sunrise” of our world is observed: the horizon.

A large number of images of Earth at night taken by astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS) could help save energy, help improve human health and safety, and improve our understanding of atmospheric chemistry. But scientists need your help to make this happen.

This clarity is made possible by the European Space Agency's NightPod, installed on the station in 2012. It incorporates a motorized tripod that compensates for the station's speed of approximately 17,500 mph and the motion of the Earth below. Before, that movement could distort the images even though the astronauts compensated with high-speed film and manual tracking.

Simply spectacular this video from the International Space Station that orbits our planet, time-lapse sequences taken by the crew of this space laboratory, where we can observe oceans, continents, cities, countries and places of interest, northern lights, southern, deserts, sunrises and sunsets every ninety minutes, in short ... a whole earthly show.
