This can happen at any point of the series, though usually at the beginning as a hook for the audience. If used at the beginning, it's usually done to show that the cast is moving away from their normal life. If used some where in the middle of the series, it's usually done to show how far they have come, in which case the characters will probably get a ICanSeeMyHouseFromHere moment. If used at the end, it might either be used for the previous example, or to show how the entire world has changed. Almost always, this will lead to the characters suddenly realizing that they're about to fall, thus ending the beautiful moment.

For Fantasy films with a romantic subplot, this is the moment when a boy takes a girl [[DefrostingIceQueen indifferent to him]] into a mindblower of an experience flying with the world's wonders in full view and realizing to her wonder what the boy can do. By the time they come in for a landing, the girl usually needs no more convincing that she is not letting this terrific guy go.

* There is a scene in ''[[Literature/{{Ringworld}} The Ringworld Engineers]]'' by Creator/LarryNiven in which Luis Wu and Chmee land on the Ringworld's wall. The sight of the Ringworld stretching below him, displaying a land area greater than the surface of the Earth[[note]]approximately three million times greater, in fact: there is a (full scale) [[http://s826.photobucket.com/user/Known_Space/media/GreatOceanMap.jpg.html map of Earth in the form of some continent-size islands]] on Ringworld[[/note]], momentarily takes Wu's breath away.

-->'''Sam:'''It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.\\

** Possibly the only event to top it was the major television networks' [[http://web.kitsapsun.com/archive/1999/12-30/0098_stay_home_and_see_the_world__and_.html global coverage]] (especially [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ABC_2000_Today ABC's 24-hour spectacular]]) of the [[[[http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/WPcap/1999-11/25/099r-112599-idx.html New Year's Eve celebrations]] on the night of December 31st, 1999. Every time zone, every major city, and every outpost of humanity from isolated Pacific islands to ''Antarctica'' got in on the festivities that rung in the year 2000, burning through more fireworks in one day than have probably been manufactured on Earth in all the years since.

* Imagine how amazing it would be to see a rare animal? Say, a embryonic jellyfish, a strange creature which, while exactly what it sounds like, is still utterly fascinating to observe. There are probably countless examples of wildlife which you never notice, and tons of undiscovered animals out there, just waiting....
* Fossils, the remains of animals which lived in our planet's past, millions of years ago. From dinosaurs to the wolly mammoth to things you have probably never even heard of, there are a sign of how rich this planet's history is.

* When finally leaving [[CrapsackWorld Pandora]], Sasha from ''VideoGame/TalesFromTheBorderlands'' reacts with awe at the sight of the planet as the ship takes her further into space. Fiona can also remark about how much more beautiful it is from afar.

* ''VideoGame/NoMansSky'': Each of the worlds generated by the system is just wonderful to look at, particularly after the Foundation update that increased the frequency of colourful worlds.
