    Thinking about how all existence only exists because tiny particles obey very simple rules is more interesting to me. But still, nice video.

    It would be cool if it listed where all these locations are. Would be great for a "view the world" vacation tour.

    One of my favorites:



    The video consists of 18 short sequences. Each is a pass over some portion of the earth. Taken from international space station. Altitude is about 350 km. You see flashes of lightning from above, at one point (2:50) you can even see the moon reflected in the earths ocean, it's a beautiful video.

    1. Aurora Borealis Pass over the United States at Night
    2. Aurora Borealis and eastern United States at Night
    3. Aurora Australis from Madagascar to southwest of Australia
    4. Aurora Australis south of Australia
    5. Northwest coast of United States to Central South America at Night
    6. Aurora Australis from the Southern to the Northern Pacific Ocean
    7. Halfway around the World
    8. Night Pass over Central Africa and the Middle East
    9. Evening Pass over the Sahara Desert and the Middle East
    10. Pass over Canada and Central United States at Night
    11. Pass over Southern California to Hudson Bay
    12. Islands in the Philippine Sea at Night
    13. Pass over Eastern Asia to Philippine Sea and Guam
    14. Views of the Mideast at Night
    15. Night Pass over Mediterranean Sea
    16. Aurora Borealis and the United States at Night
    17. Aurora Australis over Indian Ocean
    18. Eastern Europe to Southeastern Asia at Night

    Earthporn is always lovely. It always seems like those places don't actually exist.

    If you like pictures like these i strongly advice you to bookmark the national geographic photo of the day site.
    Here's a few examples:

    The mask I wear is one"

    This is a fantastic walk through of life on earth, this film is a beauty, photo by world famous french photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Like 90% of it is aerial shots of some of the worlds most remarkable places.
    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...
