Flying over the Earth at Night II
Video Credit: NASA, Gateway to Astronaut Photography; Music: The Low Seas (The 126ers)Explanation:
What would it be like to orbit the Earth? The International Space Station
(ISS) does this every 90 minutes, and sometimes the astronauts on board take image sequences
that are made into videos
. The featured time-lapse video
shows many visual spectacles of the dark Earth
below. First, as the video begins, green and red auroras
are visible on the upper left above white clouds. Soon city lights come into view, and it becomes clear
you are flying over North America
, eventually passing over Florida
. In the second sequence you fly over Europe
, eventually passing over the Nile River
. Brief flashes of light are lightning
. Stars far in the distance can be seen rising through thegreenish-gold glow
of the Earth’s atmosphere
