Taking Pictures from Orbit

Space Weather is something that has always fascinated me. You are going to end up asking me, how does taking pictures from orbit have to do with Space Weather?  Well not too much however, seeing high quality images of the Earth gives us an idea of the conditions in both the atmosphere such as seeing the aurora and the in our sky with cloud formations, storms and at times, views of the surface such as ocean currents and river flows.  Just looking at the complex and beautiful textures that can be seen from space is worth seeing this video.

Special thanks to Commander Hadfield for sharing such a great and informative video 
from on board the International Space Station.
