The stars as viewed from the International Space Station (timelapse)

Alex Rivest edited a video compilation of different time-lapses  of depicting the stars from low earth orbit, as viewed from the International Space Station 240 miles up. (Images edited using Adobe Lightroom with some cropping to make the stars the focal point of each shot, and with manipulation of the contrast to bring out the stars a bit more.)

According to ISS astronaut Ron Garan, most of the images were taken by NASA astronaut Ron Pettit, currently on Expedition 30 aboard the ISS.

“Dedicated to those who dream of exploring the solar system, and those who are sharing their experiences while doing it!” Alex.
