(Newser) – Remember the last 'round-the-world trip we recommended? This one might be even better. It's 18 sequences of time-lapse photography (the first two over the US) taken 240 miles above the earth by the International Space Station and edited by designer Michael König. They make our home look positively electrifying. Earth shimmers with light nearly nonstop in the photos, from the artificial lights of cities to lightning to the Aurora Borealis and the Aurora Australis. Click here for the list of fly-over sites.
