Breathtaking views of the Earth from the International Space Station

Ever wanted to see Planet Earth from 248 miles away? That’s how high the International Space Station orbits above the earth, which is about the same distance as New York to Washington DC, or London to Durham.

Thanks to these epic views of our planet from the International Space Station in the thermosphere, now you can get glimpse of the perspective.

Watch the crescent Earth rotate among the solar panels and the sun in various views as the International Space Station orbits Earth at 17,500mph.

Stunning. And be sure to follow the International Space Station on Twitter for more live shots.
