"Starman" in Orbit - Amazing views of Earth from SpaceX Spacecraft Briefly in Earth Orbit

On the very long video above, see lots of amazing views of Earth from orbit several thousand kilometers above earth from the SpaceX spacecraft with Elon Musk's old $100,000 cherry red Tesla Roadster with a dummy in its driver's seat named "Starman." After orbiting for a few hours after the launch yesterday, the spacecraft has since had a successful burn to take it out of Earth orbit and on its way towards Mars. It will continue indefinitely on an orbit that will keep it going around the sun and back again towards Mar's orbit and the asteroid belt.
