Starry Nights, as Seen from the International Space Station

Image credit: 

Some of us have been fortunate to see a truly starry night -- away from light pollution in cities, you can see quite a lot. But when you're in space you can see even more. In this collection of footage from the International Space Station, point your attention to the stars -- and see what our spacefaring friends get to witness every day. Unlike other ISS flyby videos, the focal point here is not the Earth at night (though that is interesting), it's the stars. Enjoy.

If you want to make your own neato ISS video, check out The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth.
