It’s almost as though you could spot your house if you looked hard enough.

A stunning timelapse video by astronaut Tim Peake shows night-time Britain illuminated by millions of lights.

The spaceman from Westbourne near Chichester posted the 17-second clip on his Twitter account, saying: ‘A #timelapse flight over UK and Northern Europe. I try to wave every time I can.’

Major Peake has posted several stunning pictures and videos from the International Space Station as it hurtles around the world at 17,000mph.
