Highest-Res 4K Video of Our Beautiful Planet Ever Made... (video)

If you didn't know already, our planet is pretty damn beautiful. Don't believe me? Then check out this video of it below. It is the 'highest resolution' video ever made.
Your welcome :) 
A time-lapse of Earth in 4k resolution, as imagined by the geostationary Elektro-L weather satellite, from May 15th to May 19th, 2011. Elektro-L is located ~ 40,000 km above the Indian Ocean, and it orbits at a speed that causes it to remain over the same spot as the Earth rotates. The satellites creates a 121 megapixel image (11136x111136 pixels) every 30 minutes with visible and infrared light wavelengths.
