We’ve seen Chris Hadfield sing “Ground Control to Major Tom” from space, but now we have the first ever Vine video.

The six-second video social media platform has become incredibly popular since its inception in 2013, with even Elmo “doing it for the Vine.”

The video posted by astronaut Reid Wiseman shows a complete orbit of the International Space Station around the earth. In the back, the sun appears to be going in a circle and never actually sets, since the ISS is currently positioned on the “terminator line,” where the night and day side of the planet meet.
