    Link: What Does It Feel Like To Fly Over Planet Earth? - A time-lapse taken from the front of the International Space Station as it orbits Earth at night.

    That was pretty nifty. Looked like Coruscant at some parts.

    Technically, it should be titled "What Does It Feel Like To Fall Over Planet Earth?", but it is beautiful nonetheless.

    Notice the white flashes ? Those are lighting bolts. Kind of odd to see them from space like that.

    If you really want to be technical then go with "What Does It Feel Like To be in Low Earth Orbit?"

    Hmm who know what part of the world is this?

    @Steelgrid don`t be rude please, this video is amazing, you are talking as you see this spectacle every morning when you wake up. EVERY video from ISS deserve a post c`mon!

    Cajun247-"If you really want to be technical then go with "What Does It Feel Like To be in Low Earth Orbit?"

    And, technically, `Low Earth Orbit` is the process of falling over the horizon. (i.e. `Falling around the Earth).

    The ISS is, indeed, continually falling (i.e. in the state of `free-fall`). As the ISS moves sideways (tangentially), it falls toward the Earth. However, it has enough tangential velocity to miss the Earth, and will continue falling indefinitely.

    Looks like it`s going from NW to SE over the coast of California. See the Gulf of California the Baja Peninsula at 0:18?

    mykunter, you just beat me to it. Then is flies onward over Mexico and then picks up the eastern seaboard of south America - Pacific coast to the right and Antiplano/Amazon to the left.
