ISS astronauts capture a comet in the best space time-lapse yet

You may yawn "oh, it's just another boring space station time-lapse movie—meh!" and don't watch this video, but that would be a big mistake. This is, by far, the most breathtaking time-lapse from space I've ever seen. It even has a comet flying through. Goosebumps.

David Peterson's video—created from ISS mission photos—really captures the incredible awe one must feel every time you wake up in a place like that. The crispy textures, the color, the lighting, those outside shots showing the Soyuz and the cupola... it's unreal. And then—boom!—a comet in the distance. Incredible.

Why do we, as humans, see beauty in things like golden light, comet flares, cloud cover, etc? This video is awesome, yes, but it also hits me on an emotional level that I don't understand.
