The timelapse video, taken by German astronaut and ISS commander Alexander Gerst, shows the Russian Progress MS-10 cargo spacecraft as it was launched from Baikonur, Kazakhstan on November 16.

The footage shows the spacecraft as it blasts away from a light-strewn Earth and travels right through our planet’s atmosphere and into space, where the craft dramatically separates from its carrier rocket in a fiery explosion.

The cargo spacecraft arrived safely at the ISS two days later.
