Paper models, photos and musings of a Paper Kosmonaut

Great timelapse film from ISS

No new building yet, still too uninspired to pick up the paper and glue.
Merzo brought this little gem to my attention, it's a timelapse movie shot bij low-light cameras on the ISS when passing over the nightly areas of the planet. It looks as though the whole planet is covered in a green layer of an ongoing aurora. But when you see the actual parts where there *is* an aurora, you can easily spot the difference.
beautiful to see the solar arrays rotate to new positions and the different views from different portholes.
Enjoy it fullscreen (click on the outward pointing arrows next to the word "vimeo").
