Best New Batch of Astronomy Vids EVER!

------
Over the past couple days, there have been quite a few very interesting astronomy videos released.  I'm very excited at the wonderful content and quality of this batch.

Here they are, in order of digestibility, from pure layman to more advanced.

This really is, in my opinion, the greatest time-lapse video ever.
"All Alone in the Night - Time-lapse footage of the Earth as seen from the ISS"

Symphony of Science has a brand new music video.  I'm very happy to see his musical techniques improve steadily over the years.  Titled strangely, I didn't know this was going to be a song in his classic style.  Wonderful work, John!

This isn't brand new, but it's new to me, and I was floored.
Produced by TIME Magazine, AMAZING, check out:
"10 Questions for Neil deGrasse Tyson"
It seems to me that everything out of Neil's mouth is either eloquent poetry or wonderful humor.  This interview session holds a great amount of importance to me personally.  The significant question that matters to me is:
"What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the Universe?"  ( HERE is the isolated movie clip of this single answer.  Embedded below is the entire interview from which this is taken.)

Within, Neil provides the most elegant, poetic expression I've found on the specific subject of my tattoo sleeves on both of my arms.
You might recognize the saying.  It's in the main graphic at the top of this blog.

"Be Humble For You Are Made Of Earth" (on one arm)

"Be Noble For You Are Made Of Stars"  (on the other arm)

Deep Sky Videos just released two very interesting vids.
The first, on Messier Object 33:
"M33 - Triangulum Galaxy - Deep Sky Videos"

Beyond the cliche "last but not least,"  here we have last, but most importantly.
Dr. Meghan Gray explains the technical specifics involved in the execution of an astronomer's current subject of research, from proposal on forward.  I learned more in this video than the last year's worth of pop-sci astronomy videos.
