Amazing view of Earth seen from the International Space Station at night

Have you ever pondered the experience of being an astronaut? Imagined the sensation of looking down at our planet Earth while floating 250 miles (400 kilometers) above it?

Recently, a captivating video was shared by the 'Space' account on X, which was previously recognized as Twitter.

This video provides a glimpse into the incredible reality of orbiting the Earth at night from such an astonishing altitude.

The brief clip was captured from the perspective of the International Space Station (ISS), the largest modular space station positioned in low Earth orbit

Remarkably, it stands as the largest space station in low orbit and is a collaborative effort involving five different space agencies.

Despite the ISS's seemingly "moderate" altitude, astronauts stationed there are treated to breathtaking views of city lights and natural wonders like the northern lights.
