This is one of those videos that gives me a lump in my throat every time I watch it. The beauty and splendor of our world when seen from orbit hits me in a very emotional way. The stars wheeling overhead, the auroras seen from above, the lights of our cities, the flashes from storms … I’m not religious in any way, but this is the closest I can get to feeling spiritual about something.
I found this while poking around Vimeo on my Apple TV. The video below is from YouTube. This is what the maker of the video, Knate Myers, had to say:
Every frame in this video is a photograph taken from the International Space Station. All credit goes to the crews on board the ISS.
I removed noise and edited some shots in photoshop. Compiled and arranged in Sony Vegas.
Music by John Murphy – Sunshine (Adagio In D Minor)

Watch this. Trust me. If you aren’t moved in some way, I’m not sure what to say to you.
