ISS timelapse shows the launch of the Progress MS-10 supply mission

Some of the best photography and video's from the Earth available comes from the lucky few astronauts aboard the ISS. While the space station orbits the earth, the crew members get a literal overview of the entire planet, complete with clouds during the day and bright city lights at night. Crew members also got an extraordinary look at the launch of the Russian supply mission last week.

Riccardo Rossi created the time-lapse on board the ISS and shows the launch of Progress MS-10 as seen for a job. You can clearly see the rocket skyrocketing to the surface of the planet as it reaches the space and overflows the rocket's footprint. You can also see the main stage of the rocket if it falls back into the atmosphere and burns at re-entry.

MS-10 remains captivated by the video as it orbits the Earth and chases the ISS down to connect the station's running system with many supplies for the people living on the ISS. From launch to final docking, MS-10 needed two days to complete its docking mission.

On board the supply ship was 2.5 tons of cargo with 725 kg of fuel, 420 kg of fresh water and a lot of food, clothing, spare parts and scientific material. The ISS has been in orbit around the earth for two decades now.

Note the above time-lapse and pay attention to the earth as it flies past the ISS. There was some talk in the video responses of the bright red flashing lights that can be seen from the track at the end of the video on the 1: 13 sign. The consensus is that these are red flashing lights on windmills.
