Tim Peake Shares Timelapse of ISS Passing Over Great Britain in Low Earth Orbit

British astronaut Tim Peake decided to greet English folk with a big hello in the form of a timelapse tweet which saw the International Space Station (ISS) pass over Britain and Europe in low earth orbit at a height of 400 kilometers.

That’s roughly 15 times higher than the Sony a7S—that soared to 90,000 feet above San Francisco—which is very low for a habitable artificial satellite.

The footage was compiled using Raw photos from the NASA archive. An extended version set to soothing music was created earlier by Space & Astronautics Enthusiast Riccardo Rossi (see above video).

Astronaut Scott Kelly will return to Earth on March 1 alongside fellow cosmonauts Mikhail Kornienko and Sergey Volkov. Kelly and Kornienko spent the last year together aboard the ISS.

Tim Peake, Tim Kopra and Yuri Malenchenko will remain on the station.
