Earth from Space: From Africa to Russia


Today’s Video of the Day comes from the European Space Agency’s Earth from Space series and features a timelapse view from Africa to Russia.

The clip consists of 710 images taken from the International Space Station by ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli on September 12, 2017. The images were taken at night, so city lights are seen lighting up the sky along with lightening from several thunderstorms.
