You might think I'm trying to clear out all the time lapse videos I have jostling for attention in my blog post queue, but hold up! I have one that isn't your everyday video. Not by a long shot. A long, long shot.

This one, using photographs by astronauts on the International Space Station, is different. It features different frame rates, different angles, different music, and even a different soundtrack: inspirational speeches play over the equally inspirational photographs, giving this video a feel that's, well, different than others.


The aspect ratio is very wide, and I had to shrink it to make it fit the blog, so I suggest watching it full screen. As usual, if you want to understand some of the things you're seeing, check out the links in Related Posts below.

I live every single day of my life inspired by space. It's a true joy to know that so many other people feel the same way.
