Earth Time Lapse
A time lapse journey round the Earth, first during the day and then through the night - day time passes over Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and California / Mexico, and night time passes over the UK, Ireland, mainland Europe, the USA, Canada and the Atlantic Ocean. Several night sequences feature the fabulous Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) and watch out for the Milky Way, and thunderstorms at night over mid-West USA.
Photograph sequences were taken by the crews of Expedition 30 and Expedition 31 on board the International Space Station (ISS) between December 2011 and June 2012.
