Spellbinding timelapse of violent Indonesian thunderstorm filmed from space (VIDEO, PHOTOS)
Peake, who picked up some photography tips from Kelly while their ISS missions overlapped, has shared a mesmerizing sky-high video of a thunderstorm over Indonesia.
Timelapse footage, filmed on board the ISS as it speeds hitting 17,500 mph (28,150 km/h), condenses minutes into seconds and offers an unparalleled view of Earth’s tumultuous weather.
Space photography fans feared the worst when US Astronaut Scott Kelly, who had built up quite a reputation for capturing awe-inspiring images of Earth, finished up his #YearInSpace program.
But Peake’s latest photos and videos are any indication, he’s got it covered.
