Earth | Time Lapse View from Space, Fly Over | NASA, ISS from Michael König on Vimeo.
Check the comments by editor Michael König at Vimeo to learn about the origin of the video and the locations. Music by Jan Jelínek (which sounds more Czech than an average Czech citizen's name: "John Little Dear").
Given the fact that the blue, not green planet is going to die within five years or so, as we're being constantly told, She looks pretty! Let me admit that I can't safely identify almost any place. The Daily Mail pointed out that the video contains a mystery city, too.
