TAMPA (CBS TAMPA) – NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman created the first Vine video from Earth’s orbit on Friday, showing a time-lapse trip around the earth.

The brief video is part of the Vine app – which allows users to create 6-7 second, looping videos. Wiseman sent the brief time-lapse video out to his Twitter followers, showing the sped-up version of his entire trip around the earth from the International Space Station.

“1st Vine from space! Single Earth orbit. Sun never sets flying parallel w/terminator line,” reads the tweet.

The terminator line, or “twilight zone,” is a moving border that separates the illuminated day side and the dark night side of a planet. It’s defined as the locus of points on a Moon or planet where the line’s angle through the Sun is tangent.
