Video: Soaring over Earth

This amazing video has already been posted by basically every other space blogger but I can't resist featuring it too, especially because I just realized that it was not made by NASA but instead by a member of the public digging into public NASA archives of image data -- yay for amateurs!

Please accept marketing-cookies to watch this video.

The other cool thing about this video is to imagine all those people, in all those cities, able to look up just before dawn and see the steadily moving bright star of the Space Station arcing over their heads, looking up as the astronauts look down.

We know you love reading about space exploration, but did you know you can make it happen?

Consider a gift to our Space Policy and Advocacy program to fuel more missions, more science, and more exploration.
