New Stuff and Inspiration
Time lapse footage of the earth- it's Sukle in space.
Mike went up with Sir Richard Branson this weekend and did a few rotations around the planet. These are his home videos, time lapsed, of the earth at night from space. Pretty cool what you can do with a D-SLR, huh?
Actually these are shot from the International Space Station. But we like to think Mike spends his free time in space.
Here’s the explantation from the Astronomy Picture Of The Day section of the NASA site: “Explanation: Many wonders are visible when flying over the Earth at night. A compilation of such visual spectacles was captured recently from the International Space Station (ISS) and set to rousing music. Passing below are white clouds, orange city lights, lightning flashes in thunderstorms, and dark blue seas. On the horizon is the golden haze of Earth’s thin atmosphere, frequently decorated by dancing auroras as the video progresses. The green parts of auroras typically remain below the space station, but the station flies right through the red and purple auroral peaks. Solar panels of the ISS are seen around the frame edges. The ominous wave of approaching brightness at the end of each sequence is just the dawn of the sunlit half of Earth, a dawn that occurs every 90 minutes.”
