    Video: International Space Station Star Trail Time-Lapse

    This video was achived by “stacking” image sequences provided by NASA from the crew at the International Space Station. These stacks create the Star Trails, but furthermore make interesting patterns visible. For example lightning corridors within clouds, but they also show occasional satellite tracks (or Iridium Flashes) as well as meteors – patterns that interrupt the main Star Trails, and thus are immediately visible.
