Earth in 4K

Kevin Briggs

If you have the opportunity to view this on a 4K or even 5K computer display — or can view on a Retina resolution iPad (the iPhone technically works, but the small screen doesn't do the scene justice) — the resolution quality of this brief video is simply amazing.

Even though the video is only a little more than one minute in length, the views of earth from the International Space Station are indeed breathtaking. Before now, such a high resolution view of earth has only been granted to those men and women who have been fortunate enough to view earth from space themselves.

Be sure to view in full screen mode — especially on a 4K or 5K screen — and be sure to have the settings (bottom right) at maximum resolution.
