A NASA astronaut who recently went up to the International Space Station went on social media earlier this week to share his stunning view of Earth. In a video post, he showed a breathtaking view of our planet - even going so far as saying the clip doesn’t do justice to the real thing.
‘My first video from space!’ Astronaut Victor Glover wrote on Twitter. ‘The scale of detail and sensory inputs made this a breathtaking perspective,’ he added. Since posting, the video has amassed over 2.1 million views and over 100,000 likes.
My first video from space! Looking at the Earth through the window of Dragon Resilience. The scale of detail and sensory inputs made this a breathtaking perspective! pic.twitter.com/n7b5x0XLIp— Victor Glover (@AstroVicGlover) November 24, 2020
In the clip, Glover can be seen pointing the camera towards the window of his craft whilst also providing commentary. The video has prompted a number of amazed comments from users.
I don't know how you all get work done up there. I would just be staring out that window all the time.— Travis Mersiovsky (@TMersiovsky) November 24, 2020
Stunning! It makes me so happy that you are finally in space witnessing such beauty!— Evelyn Janeidy Arevalo (@JaneidyEve) November 24, 2020
