The ISS can be seen clearly in the video as it hovers above Earth

The time lapse footage shows the view from the ISS as it takes a trip over a very cloudy looking Earth.

You can see part of the large spacecraft travel across different time zones and in and out of darkness as it orbits from the Pacific to the Atlantic.

Nasa uploaded the video to it’s YouTube channel where it received tens of thousands of views in the first 24 hours.

One delighted YouTube user, Daniel Flores, commented: “What a beautiful view of our big blue marble. I never tire of seeing sights like that. Show more!!”

What is the ISS?

Here's what you need to know about the International Space Station…

  • The International Space Station, often abbreviated to ISS, is a large space craft that orbits Earth and houses astronauts who go up there to complete scientific missions
  • Many countries worked together to build it and they work together to use it
  • It is made up of many pieces, which astronauts had to send up individually on rockets and put together from 1998 to 2000
  • Ever since the year 2000, people have lived on the ISS
  • Nasa uses the ISS to learn about living and working in Space
  • It is approximately 250 miles above Earth and orbits around the planet just like a satellite
  • Living inside the ISS is said to be like living inside a big house with five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a gym, lots of science labs and a big bay window for viewing Earth
