ISS Space Station orbit timelapse

This timelapse taken from the front of the ISS (that's International Space Station) is pretty c00l.  It's amazing what can be seen from way up there -- at first I thought it was an overlaid 'night lights' image on the ground.  Visible targets include Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, the various California cities, Texas, Mexico, and a bunch of stuff further down in South America. NASA and space in general can use any positive PR it can get.  I guess this is what it looks like when you're flying around the Earth in reverse to turn back time (Superman)
