Incredible timelapse by an MIT PhD

Alex Rivest has a PhD in Neuroscience from MIT. Oh, and he’s competiting to be a NASA astronaunt. Oh, and one more thing, he’s put together this beautifully artistic time lapse of earth as seen from the International Space Station. You see tons of aurora, the flickering of lightning from storms on the earth and the bright lights of the world’s largest cities. He also has a blog post that answers a lot of questions you may have after watching the video. You can find it here. Enjoy!
