Timelapse videos depicting the stars from low earth orbit, as viewed from the International Space Station. Images edited using Adobe Lightroom with some cropping to make the stars the focal point of each shot, and with manipulation of the contrast to bring out the stars a bit more.

The video plays best if you let it load a bit first.

First sequence star-trails processed using StarStaX:

Music: "Truck out There" by London PM.
Editing by Alex Rivest

Timelapses and images courtesy: The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth. The Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center. One of NASA's best outreach programs, in my opinion.

A very big thanks to NASA astronaut Don Pettit (@astro_Pettit) for taking most of these images.

Dedicated to those who dream of exploring the solar system, and those who are sharing their experiences while doing it.
