Home for the Holidays: Views of Earth from the International Space Station

As Perspectives readers gather with family and friends to celebrate the holidays, the Water Quality and Health Council highlights a stunning two-and-one-half minute video comprising images of our common home, planet Earth.  “All Alone in the Night – Time-lapse footage of the Earth as seen from the ISS” (International Space Station) was created by David Peterson and has been viewed over six million times. 

We hope you will find the video awe-inspiring, and that you will see the wonder of our magnificent home reflected in the eyes of your loved ones.

(For best effect, play the video in “full screen mode” with low or no room lighting.)

Happy Holidays from the Water Quality and Health Council!
