Our little blue orb suspended in the expanse of the cosmos is truly a unique – and beautiful – celestial entity.
Check out this entrancing time lapse video of the Earth as shot from the International Space Station. The sequences of photographs were taken by Ron Garan, Satoshi Furukawa and the crew of expeditions 28 and 29 on board the International Space Station. Taken between August and October, 2011 these pictures were taken at an altitude of around 350 km.
Michael König refurbished, smoothed, retimed, denoised, deflickered, cut, the pictures to give us the montage that we can see here, making every attempt to keep the look of the material as original as possible, without adjusting the colors. What we get is something amazing – and which goes to show just how incredible our pale blue dot really is.
