(WVUE) -

A time-lapse video just released by NASA shows a year in the life of Earth in three minutes.

The video aggregates more than 3,000 photos from a camera on board NASA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory, or DSCOVR. The camera has been snapping photos of Earth every two hours.

A partnership of NOAA, NASA, and the U.S, Air Force, DSCOVR collects data on Earth’s atmosphere and maintains real-time solar wind monitoring capabilities. NOAA then uses this information to generate space weather forecasts and alerts for events such as geomagnetic storms.
