Put the best of mankind in space and they will make art. Or, at least, that seems to be the case on the International Space Station. The astronauts and cosmonauts aboard can’t help but record their magnificent trajectory suspended between earth and cosmos.
Knate Myers, a astronomy and time-lapse photographer from Albuquerque, New Mexico, compiled photographs taken aboard the ISS into a stunning video of planet Earth at night. Myers used Adobe Photoshop to remove noise and edit other details, but the scope of the work is an accurate depiction of the universe as seen from just above Earth’s grasp.
The video is set to John Murphy’s “Sunshine (Adagio In D Minor.”
The video—as proper art does—awakens, inspires, and helps us dream.
