Time-Lapse | Earth

Time-Lapse|Earth

This is something I always wanted to do but never had the computer resources or time.  But with the weather not being ideal for going out and shooting time-lapses, and an upgrade to my computer I decided to finally give this a go.

Hope you all enjoy it and thanks for watching!

 

All Time-lapse sequences were taken by the astronaunts onboard the International Space Station (ISS) (Thanks guys for making this available to the public for use!)  All footage has been color graded, denoised, deflickered, slowed down and stabilized by myself.  Clips were then complied and converted to 1080 HD at 24 frames/sec.

 

Some interesting tidbits about the ISS.  It orbits the planet about once every 90 mins and is about 350 Km/217 miles.

 

The yellow/greenish line that you see over the earth is Airgolw. 

 

Hope you all enjoy it and thanks for watching!

 

P.S.  It would be a dream to actually be up there in the ISS.  Btw NASA, if you need a Biochemistry Ph.D to do some work for you up there, I’m your man, LOL!

Regardez comme c'est beau, tous les jours nous vivons des choses extraordinaires et nous ne les voyons pas toujours, occupés à nous chamailler, obnubilé par toute les petites contrariétés vécues de la journée.
Et pourtant le monde est merveilleux, nous vivons une époque extraordinaire où nous avons accès à tout ou presque tout, chaque personne, chaque être est fabuleux par sa diversité et pourtant souvent sa différence nous agace, c'est parfois notre jalousie, notre convoitise qui nous empêche de nous aimer et par là d'aimer les autres simplement.
Pourtant le bonheur est là à deux doigt, mais souvent nous l'effleurons sans l'atteindre vraiment.
Chaque jour émerveillons nous de ce monde dans lequel nous ne faisons que passer, profitons de chaque seconde comme si c'était la dernière et occupons là à l'essentiel.
La vie est précieuse, soyez heureux !!!
