Watch this: the best light display you'll see all year

New, 6 comments

Courtesy of the European Space Agency, here's the best Christmas light display I've seen all year: a time lapse of more than 12,000 images taken by German astronaut Alexander Gerst, while he was on the International Space Station for six months. If you like the aurora borealis, very clear views of stars, or a look at our cities' lights from space, you're in luck.

This isn't the first beautiful ISS timelapse. If you find yourself hungry for more, check out Knate Myers' video from 2012.
