Watch Earth roll by through the perspective of ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst in this six-minute timelapse video from space. Combining 12 500 images taken by Alexander during his six-month Blue Dot mission on the International Space Station this Ultra High Definition video shows the best our beautiful planet has to offer.

Marvel at the auroras, sunrises, clouds, stars, oceans, the Milky Way, the International Space Station, lightning, cities at night, spacecraft and the thin band of atmosphere that protects us from space.

Often while conducting scientific experiments or docking spacecraft Alexander would set cameras to automatically take pictures at regular intervals. Combining these images gives the timelapse effect seen in this video.

  1. 1:16 that little haze is all that is keeping everything on Earth alive.  Like a soap bubble, delicate, fragile and wondrous in its design.  Its impossible for me to think that it was just the "odds" or plain luck that a planet just happened to have it, and because of that, and some other fluke, that life just started up.  How fragile a world we live on, our only home.  It's about time we took care of it, as it has taken care of all life for so very long.
