Spectacular Long Exposure Taken from Space - My Modern Metropolis

Stunning picture…

Expedition 31 Flight Engineer Don Pettit created this magnificent image by combining 18 long-exposure digital images taken with a camera mounted inside the International Space Station (ISS) on March 16, 2012. The streaks of psychedelic colors show the passage of cities below the ISS, airglow in Earth’s atmosphere and the circling motion of stars. Even more amazing, the bright blotches lined up at the bottom of the picture are lightning flashes within storm clouds.
