US Space agency NASA, recently released a stunning video which shows time-lapse sequence of an entire year of life on Earth.


The video has been taken by NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) which is placed at a distance of one million miles from earth and sent its first set of images a year back on July 6, 2015.

In the past one year, EPIC, has captured over 3,000 breathtaking images of Earth while it took its 365 day tour around the sun.



Weaving these 3,000 images together, NASA scientists, led by Jay Herman have now made a mind blowing time-lapse video that shows an entire year of Earth in under 3 minutes.


The mind blowing images were taken by EPIC once in every two hours. 

According to Herman, it was even been able to capture sunrise and sunset, which took place at least 13 times a day.

The video runs from August 2015 till July 2016 and has captured everything from the continents to deserts to forests and even weather systems.

What is more, the camera was even able to capture the spectacular event of March 8, when moon passed between earth and sun causing a total solar eclipse.
