Photographer Bruce W. Berry has meticulously pieced together a gorgeous and humbling compilation of time-lapse sequences taken by astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

To make it happen, Berry color graded, denoised, deflickered, slowed down, and stabilized the pre-existing images. The clips were then compiled and converted to 1080 HD at 24 frames/second.

Berry was kind enough to provide a list of shots:

Footage Note: The slower video represents a closer resemblance to the true speed of the International Space Station; this footage was shot at one frame per second. Clips are all marked with an *.
