I have created another EARTHEREAL film using the time-lapse image data shot by ISS astronauts in 2011 and 2012.
The original EARTHEREAL became a Vimeo Staff Pick: vimeo.com/adonispulatus/earthereal
It can be noticed from the NASA imagery that much of our planet's surface is either brown or blue. And rather less of it is green. The rest of the surface is turned over to highly-lit areas of concrete, where most of us tend to live.
