This video of our planet may take just six seconds to watch, but it represents more than six months of satellite imagery.

Visible infrared imaging radiometer suite (VIIRS) on Suomi NPP took photographs of the eastern hemisphere between January 18 to July 25 to bring us this, showing the Earth and its swirling clouds in all their beauty.

Of all the planets Nasa has explored, none have matched the dynamic complexity of our own.
