This video might be the coolest part of your weekend.

Made with NASA photos taken 240 miles above Earth at the International Space Station, the gorgeous time-lapse documents some of the world's most stunning views. Pay close attention to the Aurora Borealis, featured in the first two shots.

Artist Michael König edited the piece. Check out raw footage of Earth courtesy of NASA.

A similar video also made the rounds in September.
