NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman has posted a time-lapse Vine video online of one orbit of Earth that has gone viral.

Wiseman, who is part of the six-member crew currently living in the International Space Station, recently posted the 6-second video on the mobile app. Because of the orbit, the sun appears to never set.

Since his arrival at the station on May 28, Wiseman has frequently posted photos of the Earth to his Twitter account and became the first person to post a Vine from space.

The video has been shared nearly 3,400 times on Vine and 4,800 times on Twitter.
