VIDEO: NASA release stunning high-definition footage of Earth from the International Space Station

No sign of Ireland, unfortunately.

During Chris Hadfield’s time on the International Space Station (ISS), we used to be spoiled by the astronaut providing an insight into just how stunning the Earth looked from space.

It was great for us that he happened to have a soft spot for Ireland, too.

There’s no sign of our own country in the most recent ultra high definition footage released by NASA from the International Space Station, although don’t let that take away from how spectacular it is.

Watch this on as big a screen as you can, because a phone doesn't really do it justice.
