This live stream from the International Space Station began in October and I wish I had discovered it before. It probably would have been helpful in that last, hectic, quarter of 2016.
The ISS is home to American, Japanese, Canadian, and European astronauts, as well as Russian cosmonauts, and its a stunning view of Earth from space, 240 miles above the planet. The comment feed is kind of cool as well, since it’s on a global scale, you can chat with people all over the Earth you’re looking at, in that very moment.
If you need some perspective or just a moment of peace and calm, this will do it. Kudos also to Kevin McLeod for the music:
Peace of Mind
Almost in F
Music for Manatees
Good news is that NASA has no intention of turning off the feed anytime soon, just know that at some points there will be pre-recorded footage shown because there is a period of 45 minutes of night, so there is no light.
This addendum made me laugh:
This stream may upset those who believe in a Flat Earth – my advice:
either believe the truth that the earth if round or just look somewhere else
