Images from the International Space Station are usually breathtaking, and photographer Christoph Malin has made use of them to create a truly stunning timelapse of the station's view as it travels around our planet. The video was created by "stacking" sequences of images from the ISS, creating amazing cloud patterns and turning star movement into art. The disorganized white splatters are lightning strikes, and if you look closely, you can see tracks from meteors and satellites that don't line up with the movement of the stars.
