MCVD: Earth!

I think I'm going to make "Mondays 'Cool Video Day,'" MCVD.  Sure, I have a lot to say, but there are some really cool videos out there on the web. And, maybe everyone is a little tired of all I have to say!!

This is a 5 minute video that shows the earth from the satellite. It is so impressive with the Auroras and the lightening flashes. I kept finding myself wanting to  identify which part of the world I was looking at...unsuccessfully though. Then I went to the website and found the list. I added it below.
