This amazing new time-lapse video shows beautiful star trails and city lights streaking over the Earth’s surface as seen from space.
Photographer Christoph Malin from Austria created the stunning film by stacking image sequences provided by NASA from the crew at International Space Station. These “stacks” create the Star Trails, but furthermore make interesting patterns visible. For example lightning corridors within clouds, but they also show occasional satellite tracks (or Iridium Flashes) as well as meteors. Watch the video below.
