Everyone, I mean everyone, must watch this. Now.
If this was done in CGI no one would believe it. It would look too faked, that band of color showing the limits of earth's atmosphere, those magma-like explosions of light that are our cities at night, that look like the earth is erupting, but it's not, it's not, it's infinite. Our world is infinite and infinitely beautiful. Be filled with awe.
It was created by Knate Myers using photographs taken from the International Space Station, made into a streaming river of a time-lapse montage with a haunting soundtrack. Watch this. Full-screen and with headphones on. Now.
