NASA captures the Earth at night with Nikon D3s

German videographer Michael König has compiled a breathtaking HD video from footage shot from the International Space Station. The original video clips, that König has processed and set to music, were created from a series of time-lapse stills of the Earth at night and include footage of Aurora Borealis and Australis.

Viewing the original still images on NASA’s “The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth” website reveals they were shot with a Nikon D3S with 17-35mm f/2.8D and 14-24mm f/2.8G lenses.
