Pilot's time-lapse footage captures incredible beauty of flying at nightAn amazing video, filmed from the flight deck of a commercial long-haul flight, has captured a view of the night sky not usually seen by slumbering passengers. The video, shot by pilot Sales Wick, shows a plane taking off from Europe and heading towards South America. The plane flies along the Alps towards Switzerland before taking a turn to join the Rhone Valley towards the Mediterranean Sea. (elsewhere.nine.com.au) More...

Thanks. He has a host of great stories and pictures there.
Very beautiful. I miss the Military Flying days and this beautiful views across the Pacific and Atlantic. Now days flying civilian traffic in the U.S. we don't get to see much of this.
At about the 5-7 second point, you can see 2 satellites. They disappear when they go behind the Earth's shadow. Beautiful video.
I'm always in a window seat and always wish I could get the view from the office, up front. I've seen the aurora twice ORD-BOS and ORD-FRA. Caught Greenland twice. Watched the Big Dipper disappear over the northern horizon and saw the Southern Cross for the first time, from a window seat.
