VIDEO: Astronaut's view of the world
Need a few moments of Zen? This video from NASA's Johnson Space Center has seven of them, traveling over the Earth from the coast of Namibia to the Amazon Basin to capture an astronaut's view of the world. The incredible images are narrated by Dr. Justin Wilkinson, a soothing astronaut who points out the many rivers, mountains, deserts, and other features shown on NASA's camera from far above. You can see Utah's Salt Lake, Sicily's cloud-covered Mt. Etna; there's even footage of Hurricane Florence, forming a perfect spiral over the Atlantic Ocean.
Sit back, put the video in full-screen mode, and start dreaming of your next travel destination. What an astronaut's camera sees.
