Got three minutes to spare for a tour of southern Europe from space? That’s all the time it takes when you have a 4K camera orbiting Earth 400 kilometer (250 miles) up, on the International Space Station.


This Ultra High Definition video was shot in August 2016 as the station traveled above the western coast of France to the Iberian Peninsula, Italy, Switzerland, southern Germany, and Austria, and southward to the countries of the Balkan Peninsula.
