All Alone In The Night – Time-Lapse Footage Of The Earth From A Satellite

Many wonders are visible when flying over the Earth at night. A compilation of such visual spectacles was captured recently from the International Space Station (ISS) and set to rousing music. Passing below are white clouds, orange city lights, lightning flashes in thunderstorms, and dark blue seas. On the horizon is the golden haze of Earth’s thin atmosphere, frequently decorated by dancing auroras as the video progresses. Doesn’t it make you wonder how small  and insignificant we are? We are a tiny little thing in an enormous universe. It is funny because sometimes entitled human beings think we are the most important creature , but after you see this footage you might have second thoughts… What do you think?

  1. God created this earth for man; so although we may be small in comparison to the universe, we are none the less the most important creature on this planet and in this universe.

    “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
    And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

    This delusion of “we are the most important creature etc” creates a lot of problems, it has also been interpreted as “we , the holders of book x , are the most important PEOPLE and therefore………..we will do this and you this and if you dont look it then………………………….”

    This was really cool to watch. I would be interested to see names of the locations as it passed over.

    Strange to think,started out as some miniscule little life form floating around in the sea,to observers floating around in space.Having come all that way,developed so far,so much,you would assume humans would see the futility of wars against other humans,wouldn’t you?

    How can we call ourselves anymore important or civilized than anything when we wage wars, and have mass hatred against each other. We are not better than animals if anything we are worse
