Incredible videos have been made with photos from the International Space Station but none is quite like this one.

“This is Our Planet” was created by Tomislav Safundžic using photos and videos he took from the Image Science and Analysis Laboratory at the NASA-Johnson Space Center. He is a photography and video enthusiast from Croatia. He pieced together the photos and videos, to produce a wonderful time-lapse video that shows the earth as viewed from the International Space Station. Edited by the XX to “intro”, the video shows a spectacular view of the planet, stars, aurora, thunderstorms, night lighting and some parts of the ISS.
