The International Space Station Time Lapse Video Captures Lightening Strikes From Space
Astronaut Tim Peake posted a time lapse video from the International Space Station (ISS) that caught a particularly striking view of lightening as it flew over Earth. According to the caption, all these lightening strikes happened in a matter of minutes:
Flying from North Africa over Turkey towards Russia in this timelapse (this is speeded up; travelling about 5500 km would take around 10-12 minutes, covered here in 30 seconds).
As the ISS orbits the Earth astronauts living in the space station have the chance to take amazing time lapse video like this and others.
