Time lapse from the ISS

I happened to come across this cosmonaut's Twitter feed tonight and he posts some amazing photos he's taken from the ISS.

This video was particularly awesome.

Very cool. I like the lightning illuminating the clouds and looking at how the lights of population centers adhere to topography.

Cool, NAB.

Not to detract, but speaking of time lapses, came across this the other day:

Video from : youtu.be
Ernest Shackleton: "Men wanted for hazardous journey, small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful, honor and recognition in case of success."

10 minute lapse of 30 days. Come on.

I wouldn't jerk it furiously to 2001. I'd make it last. All three inches for that zero G space stewardess with the velcro shoes.
