I saw this in a post the other day somewhere, and I forgot to bookmark the link. I just spent the last several minutes digging through Vimeo to determine if this was the one, or if I need to lay off the Nabob.
I went apesh*t when I saw this video, so of course I found some other awesome stuff. How about the fabulous Commander Suni Williams giving a nice tour of the International Space Station? I was completely immersed, so I hope you enjoy this over your morning coffee too! (Consequently, the ISS was here when I was writing this post.)
Still need a fix? Try this:
Timelapse videos depicting the stars from low earth orbit, as viewed from the International Space Station. Images edited using Adobe Lightroom with some cropping to make the stars the focal point of each shot, and with manipulation of the contrast to bring out the stars a bit more.
The video plays best if you let it load a bit first.
Music: “Truck out There” by London PM.

Timelapses and images courtesy: The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth. The Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center. One of NASA’s best outreach programs, in my opinion.
A very big thanks to NASA astronaut Don Pettit (@astro_Pettit) for taking most of these images.
Dedicated to those who dream of exploring the solar system, and those who are sharing their experiences while doing it.
