Wow – this is pretty humbling and hypnotic at the same time! This mesmerising timelapse piece was taken from the International Space Station as it orbitted the earth.

It’s pretty damn amazing and gives you an idea of what it looks like hovering above earth and watching the beauty beneath you. From this point of view our planet looks almost alien like from the shots of the Aurora Borealis to the various small pockets of ligthning going off like flash bulbs at a concert!

Even better there’s an amazing shot of Ireland at the UK around 2.28mins.
