"View from the ISS at night" shows the beauty of Earth from space

(CBS News) Breathtaking, spectacular, beautiful. It's hard to find the words to describe the scene in this video. A compilation of several cameras on the International Space Station showing the Earth at night, perhaps it's best to let the images speak for themselves.

We can thank photographer Knate Myers for this awesome video. As Myers explains: "Every frame in this video is a photograph taken from the International Space Station. All credit goes to the crews on board the ISS."

It's a majestic vista, showing not only the beauty of our planet but also the ability of the human race to achieve extraordinary things. The awesome score from John Murphy certainly doesn't hurt either.
