This Stunning Time-Lapse Video From Space Will Leave You In Awe Of Our Spectacular Planet

A new video released Tuesday by the European Space Agency (ESA) shows the world like you've never seen it before: in super-high-definition 4K.

The stunning time-lapse video, seen above, was taken by ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst as he orbited Earth aboard the International Space Station--and paired with a mesmerizing house music soundtrack.

Watch as swirls of green from auroras borealis drift by, and streaks of blue and white stars zoom past Earth as it transitions from day to night. You're in for a treat.

For maximum viewing pleasure, turn your YouTube settings up to 4K.
