Cancel your plans for the next three minutes and forty nine seconds and watch this video instead.
I never normally post time lapse videos on their own, but this video of views from the International Space Station at night, made by Knate Myers, has just become my new favourite.
It is made up of photographs taken from the ISS and set to music from the film Sunshine. If you haven't seen the film that is well worth a watch too. (If can suspend your disbelief at a team of astronauts having to re-ignite a dying Sun. But you'll want to, trust me.) The music fits perfectly.
The views expressed are those of the author(s) and are not necessarily those of Scientific American.
