From Krulwich Wonders, An NPR Sciencey Blog:
In this video, we are flying over the Earth, looking down and seeing what astronauts see when it’s nighttime, when lightning storms flash like June bugs, when cities look like galaxies, when you can see where people are. It’s quietly astonishing.
This montage of space footage was assembled and narrated by NASA scientist Justin Wilkinson.
