Because I never get tired of time lapse videos taken from space, here is one created by Tomislav Safundžić called This Is Our Planet:
I like how it speeds the pace up over most such videos; at some spots there's a frenetic feel to it that is counter to how I usually think of what it's like to serenely orbit the Earth. I like the music, too! I've written about these time lapse videos many times, and described what's in them, including the aurorae
, the air glow
, identifying cities from space
, and so on. See the Related Posts links below. As beautiful as these videos are, I find they are even more amazing when you actually understand what you're seeing.
