HOUSTON, June 9 (UPI) -- American astronaut Reid Weisman captured video of the International Space Station orbiting Earth, edited it into a six-second timelapse, and uploaded the first Vine ever recorded in space.

The International Space Station takes 92 minutes to travel around Earth, orbiting along the "the terminator line" -- the exact point which separates night from day. Because of the ISS's specific route, the sun appears to never set as the camera rolls.

Weisman has been having fun with social media since leaving the planet, tweeting pictures of toys in zero gravity, shoutouts to family members and selfies from the ISS.
