    In what seems like a million-dollar animation clip straight out of a Hollywood movie, the launch of the spacecraft was captured on camera in rare footage. The video gives a glimpse into the world of outer space.

    A video, going viral on social media, shows the exquisite moment when a rocket is launched from Earth into space and how it is "seen from the International Space Station".

    The time-lapse video footage shows the illuminated fiery rocket departing from the Earth and leaving its atmosphere. The rocket then blows up and looks like a cloud of smoke which is actually the second stage "ignition". Eventually, the capsule is visible as a dot at the end of the clip and vanishes into the darkness.

    ​The video is reported to be that of a Russian Soyuz rocket being to the International Space Station (ISS) from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The footage was captured by an astronaut with the European Space Agency in 2018.
