From Africa to Russia: ISS captures stunning city lights around the world (VIDEO)
This time-lapse video, beamed back to Earth from the ISS, was captured on September 14. The station takes us on a journey from northern Africa, across the Mediterranean Sea to Italy and out over the border between Kazakhstan and Russia.

The ISS, which makes nearly 16 orbits around the Earth every day, while travelling at a speed of 7.67 km/s, is quite fond of treating those of us on solid ground to photos and videos from the stars. Recently, NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik, took us into the eye of a hurricane.
Back in August, Bresnik also sent us footage of a dazzling green aurora glowing on the edge of the Earth’s atmosphere.
Next month, RT will show the first-ever 360 video shot in open space by the ISS crew, sharing an actual spacewalk experience with an unparalleled level of immersion.
