Inspiration: Earth Timelapse from Space

It's becoming harder and harder these days to come up with an angle on the world that hasn't been shot or seen before. Now even the earth's orbit has been recorded in a convenient parcel, as this spell-binding timelapse footage shows. It was shot from the International Space Station and shows the Aurora Borealis, electircal storms and the lights of our cities and towns in incredible colour and detail. An inspirational reminder of the earth's beauty for those of us who'll never see such things with our own eyes.
