Assembling Photos Taken by NASA into Stunning Timelapse Photography Sequences

There’s no questioning that astronauts are treated to some pretty spectacular space imagery as they are busy at work way out in orbit. While many of these sights are not able to be seen by the earthbound, we are still fortunate enough to have a glimpse into the outer realms thanks in large part to the International Space Station which takes hundreds of thousands of photos of space, then shares them with the public:

Photographers and enthusiasts can then sort through the images the ISS posts on its website and create stunning timelapse videos from them, as is the case in the video above. David Peterson wanted to create a timelapse that pays tribute to the space station which is why you will see it make appearances quite often throughout the clip.

Don Pettit, shown above aboard the ISS, took many of the images used in the timelapse.

Once Peterson had selected all the photos he would be using for the timelapse (presumably well into the thousands) he set his sights to editing them together to create a moving image. This can be using a few different programs such as Adobe Photoshop and After Effects, or a more dedicated program such as Photolapse.
