A beautiful video captured by NASA astronaut Victor Glover was posted to Twitter, showing Earth in all its beauty.
Glover was aboard the most recent launch of a SpaceX Crew Dragon. Him and his fellow astronauts arrived safely at the International Space Station where they will stay for six-months.
He took the video from the window of his spacecraft as it shot away from Earth.
“Looking at the Earth through the window of Dragon Resilience,” wrote Glover. “The scale of detail and sensory inputs made this a breathtaking perspective!”
In the video Earth’s swirling clouds and inky blue horizon stand in stark contrast to the darkness of space.
“The video just doesn’t do it justice,” Glover says at the end.
My first video from space! Looking at the Earth through the window of Dragon Resilience. The scale of detail and sensory inputs made this a breathtaking perspective! pic.twitter.com/n7b5x0XLIp

Glover is also making history as the first black astronaut expected to stay for this extended period of time on the ISS.
