The World Keeps Spinnin’ Round

Just… just watch it:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Wow. Now that’s an interesting view! Looking north as the ISS passed southeast over North America on the night of October 18, we get a really great perspective on our planet as a globe spinning in space! Which, of course, it is.

Not to mention an awesome view of the aurora borealis, quite a few US cities, some lightning flashing in clouds over the southeastern states… and a bit of airglow as well.
