Incredible Time Lapse Video of Earth From Space

What a beautiful video!   Our children love anything to do with space -- what a special way to view Earth.  I just love the rippling, shimmering Aurora Borealis and Aurora Australis.  We were excited to pick out the Great Lakes and quickly locate where we (and Grandparents) live.

I tried to add the video here but I'm not sure how to get it to appear in HD.  I suggest going here to watch it so you get the BIG picture!  

These time lapse pictures were taken by the crew onboard the International Space Station during two expeditions between August and October, 2011.  Wonderfully edited by Michael Konig and special thanks to NASA for sharing with all of us earth-bound people! :)
