Nikon Europe released this 3-minute video by SmugMug Films showing a compilation of time lapse videos of Earth created using thousands of still photos shot by Nikon DSLRs onboard the International Space Station. The bright flashes are lightning strikes hitting the earth, watch and enjoy.
The video above was created as a promo leading up to Nikon’s 100th anniversary event on July 25th.
“Nikon’s history in Space began with the Nikon Photomic FTN, a modified Nikon F camera that was used aboard the Apollo 15 in 1971 and Nikon cameras have been aboard every manned space flight since,” Nikon says.
NASA launched a new website at images.nasa.gov where you can search their entire photo archive – you can spot a lot of Nikon cameras.
