This orbital tour of the world's cities was created by stitching together still images taken from the International Space Station.
The narrator, astronaut Don Petit, put together a motorised mount that compensated for the motion blur induced by the ISS's orbital velocity and permitted him to produce some breathtaking results. The fishing fleet off to the north-west of Japan is a particular favourite of mine, but the entire ten minute film is well worth a look.
