NASA took this video from the International Space Station, as it was circling the Earth. As the space station orbits through dark and light, it sees the sun come and go. You can see the moon rising from the right, as well.
The sequence of shots was taken on January 3, 2013 from 11:43:46 to 15:49:31 GMT, on a pass from northwestern Australia, making two complete orbits to eastern Quebec, near the Gulf of St. Lawrence. This fast-paced video features the ISS completing two and a half orbits around the Earth, crossing the terminator line several times in the process.
