DENVER – Ever wonder what astronauts see as they fly over the United States at night?

NASA astronaut and Colorado native Jack Fischer, currently in orbit on the International Space Station, shared timelapse video Sunday night that shows a sped-up view of the trip from the West Coast to Colorado.

In the video, the trip from San Diego to Denver takes just a few seconds. The lights of Denver, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins are all clearly visible.
