Terry Virts uses action camera to capture stunning view of Earth during EVA

A rare experience, which involves shedding the cost confines zones of Earth's atmosphere to life aboard the International Space Station (ISS), is reserved for few astronauts.

The US space agency NASA has released beautiful footages taken in space. The videos offer some of the most unique views that were never taken until now.

Terry Virts brought a GoPro, an action camera, into space during the spacewalk or extravehicular activity (EVA). The two footages have been released to show what went down.

Virts began his Journey aboard the space station in November 2014, as a crewmember of the orbiting lab's Expedition 42. He along with Barry Wilmore performed spacewalks in February to prepare the ISS for the installation of new docking stations.

Virts clicked some stunning shots of the Earth during a recent hour-long spacewalk with the GoPro camera. He captured many brilliant shots of sunrise, sunset and aurora above Earth’s atmosphere.

He also took pictures of the 28 North American cities that host a major-league team, then posted the photos to his Twitter and Instagram accounts (@AstroTerry and astro_terry, respectively), along with the hashtag #ISSPlayBall.
