“Today, you are an Astronaut. You are floating in inner space 100 miles above the surface of Earth. You peer through your window and this is what you see. You are people watching. These are fleeting moments.” 

So begins the intro to Astronaut.io, a site that aggregates and continuously plays generically titled YouTube videos with close to zero views.

“These videos come from YouTube. They were uploaded in the last week and have titles like DSC 1234 and IMG 4321. They have almost zero previous views. They are unnamed, unedited, and unseen by anyone but YOU.”

Just this morning, within thirty seconds of starting the stream, I went from a basketball game, to a cockfight, to a POV drone flying session, to the ocean…All of this set over the constantly changing view from a spaceship window. You can also toggle between the actual sound of the video and classical music by hitting the space bar.

It’s hypnotic af…explore at your own risk!
