A time lapse journey round the Earth, first during the day and then through the night - day time passes over Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and California / Mexico, and night time passes over the UK, Ireland, mainland Europe, the USA, Canada and the Atlantic Ocean. Several night sequences feature the fabulous Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) and watch out for the Milky Way, and thunderstorms at night over mid-West USA.

Photograph sequences were taken by the crews of Expedition 30 and Expedition 31 on board the International Space Station (ISS) between December 2011 and June 2012.

Photographs were then slightly tweaked using Adobe Lightroom as I wanted to retain the natural colour, but not all dust spots and lights spots could be removed. The sequences were then compiled using Final Cut Pro. Music is called Acoustic Plains from audionetwork.com

Hope you enjoy it...
