ISS time-lapse over Earth. Friday fun!

It’s been some time since I published a blog post with a time lapse video. Once again the ISS given us an amazing view over Earth and the full HD images bring us closer to it, at about 370 km altitude.

The astronauts living in there fly with about 70 km/s and circle the Earth every 90 minutes. They see a ton of great stuff in there. Amazing!

Hyperlapse: Microsoft’s take on first person videos is awesome

Microsoft Research has a super-project in which you take the videos someone is taking with their camera and then create a seamless time-lapse video. Hyperlapse is a time-lapse video in which the frames were created to flow continuously one form another in such a way that the camera swings are reduces to a bare minimum.

So, if you film a ton of stuff with your hand held camera and also shake it a lot, you can use Hyperlapse processes to create an ubercool looking time lapse video. Some things don’t stop to amaze me.

Take a breath with this time lapse movie – Grand Canyon : Blink of Time

Grand Canyon : Blink of Time is all you need after a week’s worth of work. This time lapse video literally stopped the time for me a few minutes. Great music, great footage and awesome kinematics.

Over 80,000 photos were taken over the course of 7 weeks in April, May, and June of 2012 to make this film.

It was made by GOT Films and the gear they used was composed of Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly (, Kessler Crane Pocket Dolly (, Cameras (two Canon 7D), Lenses (Tokina 11-16mm f2.8, Contax Zeiss 28mm 2.8, Contax Zeiss 50mm f1.4, Contax Zeiss 135mm f2.8, Canon 70-200mm f2.8 and Canon 70-200mm from ).

That gear is some serious stuff, but you can really make art with it. I am glad they published this video so that we all can enjoy it. Have a great week-end!

Earth {ISS-Timelapse} – Rise from Joan is absolutely amazing. I was a bit disapointed at first with that overwhelming speed in the video, but then it got really interesting. Could not help it and needed to post it here.

This new time lapse of ISS reminds me why we need to go over any boundaries to get to the stars. You can do your own time lapse video with the pictures offfered freely by NASA here.

And while we’re as astronmy level here is the Bonus> ESO- Europe Southern Obervatory offers several prises, among them an iPAD and a journey to the VLT telescope in Paranal, Chile. For this you need to click the image below and then take part in the two competitions in there. What did you chose VLT to scout in the sky and what meesage have you tweeted to @ESO with the reason you want to go to Paranal? Enjoy!
