Astronaut Photography: Astronaut Don Pettit creates stunning images that show us Earth from above as we’ve never seen it before.

This is an incredibly interesting short film by SmugMug Films called “From Above” – Astronaut Photography with Don Pettit. Astronaut Don Pettit has become one of the most prolific astronaut photographers during his stay on the International Space Station.  He captures breathtaking images of Earth’s most famous phenomena – aurora, star trails, city lights and more. Photography forms a big part of an astronaut’s job requirement, however Pettit’s natural curiosity has led him to not only add great scientific value, but also create stunning images that show us Earth from above as we’ve never seen it before.

You can read the full interview with Don on the SmugMug website. You can also get a closer look at some of Don’s photos here.

You might also remember we featured another short film by SmugMug called “Arctic Swell” a few weeks ago, if you haven’t seen it follow the link to have a look.  We interviewed outdoor and surf photographer Chris Burkhard and SmugMug filmed Chris and a few guys who went to the Arctic for some extreme surfing, worth a look!
