My God, it's full of star trails
You know, I was all ready to go to bed, with a blog post all ready to go first thing in the morning... and then astrophotographer Christoph Malin sent me an email about a video he put together. It's called "The ISS Stacks" - instead of a normal time lapse where you take hundreds of still images and play them as individual frames of a video, he stacked them, so that each one adds to the last. It creates a dizzying, blurred version of reality that's seriously trippy. See for yourself, but make sure it's in HD and full screen first for maximum impact.
Whoa. Now I know what David Bowman felt.
Is there anything to be learned from this video? Probably not, to be honest. It's just way, way cool.
