This space Vine of sunrise over Earth is six seconds of pure awe

As posted by astronaut Reid Wiseman.

ASTRONAUT REID Wiseman is on the International Space Station right now. And he’s been using Vine to the best of its capabilities – showing us lightning storms and Earth orbits.

But perhaps nothing so far has been as utterly majestic as this timelapse of the sun rising over the far side of a spinning Earth.

Wow. That’s us down there, you know.

If you liked that, you might also enjoy this view of the aurora borealis…
