Truly stunning, was the shooting star the little blip just a few seconds in? Really is an incredible sight, makes me wish we could visit those distant stars.

Ah nice, thanks. Yeah that's what I thought it was, glad to know I was able to spot it. I love looking at timelapse videos, the fact it's from space makes it that much more spectacular.
