A new time-lapse of the planet that we call home has been released by editor David Peterson using photographs taken by astronaut Don Pettit while he was aboard the International Space Station. The sequences were taken during expeditions 29, 30 and 31. It's quite impressive seeing the sequences put together and witnessing just how beautiful our planet can be from space.
The photos were sourced from NASA's website The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth . You can also view another time-lapse that David edited including night sequences of Earth from space.
