Cities of Europe at night


Today’s Video of the Day comes from the European Space Agency (ESA) and features a look at a variety of different European cities at night.

The clip was captured by ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli, who is on board the International Space Station as part of the Italian Space Agency’s VITA mission.

Beginning with Lisbon and Madrid, the space station makes its way over Florence, Venice, Rome, and Naples, then to Athens with Cairo and Beirut in the distance.
