Lightning and Mystery Objects Spotted by Space Station (Video)

A stunning time-lapse video of Earth captured from the International Space Station shows a lightning storm flashing over the U.S. and "possible satellites" orbiting overhead. The European Space Agency (ESA) created the video using images taken by French astronaut Thomas Pesquet, a member of the Expedition 51 crew on the orbiting complex. "Time lapse over California with a thunderstorm on the horizon," Pesquet wrote in a caption posted with the video on Flickr.
