This must be the most breathtaking one, as far as selfies go.

Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO) PSLV 37 which towed a record-breaking 104 satellites into orbit on Wednesday also filmed itself accomplishing the feat.

A high resolution camera fitted on board ISRO's workhorse rocket filmed right from blast-off till the satellites were dropped into orbit in clusters in less than 30 minutes.

A 5:32 minute video released by ISRO has some of the best moments. It starts with the 44.4 metre tall PSLV-XL variant rocket blasting off from Sriharikota at 9:28 am. A short while later India's Cartosat-2 satellite was dropped in orbit.

The 101 nano satellites PSLV carried included 96 from the US and one each from Israel, Kazakhstan, The Netherlands, Switzerland and the UAE.

In less than 28 minutes after liftoff, all the 104 satellites were pinned against the blue skies, making for a pretty picture.
