This video of a rocket launch viewed from space is mesmerizing.

Ok, so now I might end up spending my entire Friday watching videos of interesting space things… Incredible footage of a volcanic eruption viewed from space

Earth at night from space is romantic and magnificent. I hope to one day experience this view with my own eyes…

Incredible photo of the Amazon River taken from the International Space Station! (photo credit: @NASA)

Ok, now the Earth is just showing off... Spectacular aurora viewed from the International Space Station.

The Himalayas, as seen from the International Space Station. Still impossibly large and beautiful.

Ok, I’m having way too much fun to stop now. Let’s keep going… Mount Fuji, as seen from the International Space Station.

Apparently sunsets are even more romantic in space…

Ok, I’m starting to understand your obsession @elonmusk… Want to feel small? This video starts in Venice and zooms out a long, long, long way.

I got worried that Jupiter may be feeling left out. Here’s a beautiful time-lapse of two of its moons orbiting the planet, shot from space probe Cassini by NASA’s Kevin Gill.

Sorry, took a quick break to hang out with this little dude. I’m back now…

Nature in all its glory. Storm clouds over the Amazon from @NASA_Johnson

Sometimes you see a beautiful reflection off the water from a plane, but that’s nothing like this… The Sun’s reflection on the Pacific Ocean, as seen from space.

Oh my goodness…Antarctica. Credit to the @NASAGoddard for this glorious image.

Comet NEOWISE appearing over the Earth at dawn. Video shot from the International Space Station.

Ok, this was a wonderful rabbit hole to go down. Follow me @SahilBloom for more random, fascinating rabbit holes in the future. I’ll probably be *forced* to add to this thread today as I find more amazing videos and images…

Always remember: we’re all in it together on this tiny dot hurtling through empty space at 67,000 miles per hour. Go hug someone.

Tough thread for Flat Earthers. Sorry, y’all.

On the topic of feeling small: this from @waitbutwhy. We are living in a one second sizzle of brightness before an eternal darkness. If that doesn’t make you want to hug someone, nothing will.
