The European Space Agency (ESA) has released a video taken of the red planet in orbit from space.

The footage was filmed as part of the Mars Express Mission on a Visual Monitoring Camera and is close enough to see the surface of the planet.

It’s a hypnotizing video that looks like a scene from ‘Interstellar’, and is perfect for some Sunday afternoon daydreaming.
