There's just something jaw-dropping about time-lapse videos, whether they show the lifespan of a flower or the decaying of an ancient city. Got to hand it to Google though -- their latest one really does take the cake. Their new partnership with NASA and Time Magazine shows us something that we have never seen before: the stunning sight of Earth developing over a 30-year span.
As long as your jaw is already on the floor, you may as well leave it there for the next video. This one documents a female child from her birth to age 12. It's incredible to feel that "Wow, they grow up so fast" feeling packed into a two-minute chunk. Get ready!
Let's float back up into space and watch what it looks like from the view at the International Space Station.
And then a visit back down to the surface to watch the world fly by (all over the world!).
If you don't nail just the right time of year to travel to see the Northern Lights in person, never fear! Just turn out the lights and watch this.
