'This Is Our Planet' ISS Time-Lapse Video Will Blow Your Mind (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

There have been some amazing videos created with photos from the International Space Station, but none quite like this.

Tomislav Safundžić, described on his Vimeo page as an 18-year-old who enjoys photography and video editing, composed "This is Our Planet" with photos and video from the Image Science and Analysis Laboratory at the NASA-Johnson Space Center. Edited to "Intro" by The XX, the video offers a spectacular view of the home planet, aurorae, stars, and even parts of the ISS.

Col. Ron Garan, an astronaut who has spent 178 days in space, including time aboard the ISS last year, posted the video to his Google+ page on Monday night.

The ISS orbits Earth at an average altitude of about 250 miles and travels at around 17,500 miles per hour. It makes roughly 16 trips around the planet every day.

For some more time-lapse videos with footage from the ISS, check out "The Journey Home," a video that Garan helped make after he returned to Earth last fall. And for some amazing photos, click over to Safundžić's 500px page.
