Our planet is a pretty spectacular place. Not only is it filled with gorgeous natural wonders, but it makes life as we know it possible. Seeing Earth from the vantage point of the ground can be quite awe-inspiring, but as this video proves, a view from space just might blow your mind.

This time lapse video was taken by European Space Agency astronaut, Alexander Gerst over a period of six months. As Gerst traverses the planet in the International Space Station, he is able to capture all the sights we never get to see while here on the ground. From the incredible aurora borealis to the lights of all the planet’s cities, Gerst captures both natural and man-made aspects of life on Earth. You can even make out the edge of our atmosphere in some shots.

The planet is an amazing place and more than ever we need to step up to protect it. We only have one planet, so let’s take care of it!

Yawn. Over 6 minutes of dark muddy photos which frankly we\'ve all seen before (and better - particularly the ones of eyes of the hurricane) from satellite images over the years. The images at nicht showing the city lights ...there\'s no way to tell which cities it is. My mind is still very much intact, thank you. If you\'re going to show a film time lapse and call it "breathtaking" or saying we\'ll be "amazed" you\'ll have to make it better than this.
