NASA just released a timelapse video that will give you an eye-opening dose of perspective. The 3-minute video above shows 1 year in the life of Earth, photographed from 1 million miles away.
Since the middle of 2015, NASA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) has been fixed at a distance of about 1 million miles from Earth. Its onboard EPIC camera has been steadily snapping photos of our planet every 2 hours since, capturing the moon cross Earth in August 2015 and a total solar eclipse in March 2016.
For this latest timelapse, NASA took over 3,000 photos by the satellite and turned them into a never-before-seen perspective of a year passing for our planet.
