NASA astronaut, Victor Glover, Breathtaking Video of Earth From Space on Twitter. As he shared the clip on Twitter, he captioned it as: “My first video from space!”
The 43-year-old Glover is one of the four astronauts who entered the ISS after a 27-hour, automated flight aboard the Space X’s Dragon Capsule last week.
The 30-second-long video shared on Twitter showed a blue trace of Earth’s atmosphere and a cloudy blue sky.
“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,” he wrote while sharing the clip on Twitter.
As Mr. Glover focuses the camera towards Earth, he says “The video just doesn’t do it justice – It is pretty amazing though.” Watch it here:
The short clip which has been viewed over 1.9 million has gotten people being mesmerized by our planet’s beauty and many expressed their delight.
One user said, “Stunning! It makes me so happy that you are finally in space witnessing such beauty!”
“Everything we know is on that little blue marble. Seeing it from this perspective makes all the stupid petty things we fight over look like children bickering by comparison,” another wrote.
Here are other reactions.
“Orbiting Earth in the spaceship, I saw how beautiful our planet is. People, let us preserve and increase this beauty, not destroy it!”— venus 🧜♀️ (@venus47203379) November 24, 2020
