This video was taken by the crew of Expedition 29 on board the International Space Station. The sequence of shots was taken November 18 to 19, 2011 from 23:47:21 to 00:04:42 GMT, on a pass from South Africa, west of Johannesburg, to southern Pakistan. The Russian vehicle Soyuz is shown off-centre throughout the video, just days before astronauts Mike Fossum, Satoshi Furukawa, and Sergey Volkov board this vehicle to come back to Earth. Near the beginning of the video, the bright lights of Johannesburg as displayed as the ISS tracks north-east up the eastern Africa coastline. A few lightning storms can also be seen near Johannesburg. As the pass continues, the Arabian Peninsula is only briefly seen in the far right of the video before the pass ends over the Arabian Sea, just south of Pakistan.
