Time-Lapse: The Earth and Stars From Space

The Stars as Viewed from the International Space Station. from AJRCLIPS on Vimeo

Created by photographer Alex Rivest, by enhancing publicly available data from NASA’s Johnson Space Center to focus primarily on the field of stars moving in the background, the above time lapse is filled with an array of amazing images. From glowing green aurora to, to entire continents lit up by the night time lights of civilization, it’s truly an awesome piece of video. My only critique would be the music (of course). Because personally, I think smooth jazz should remain buried behind the disturbingly overgrown pubic mounds of 1970’s vintage Hardcore pornography where it belongs, and I’d have chosen something more subtle and soothing to go along with the video. Like, say, Hate Eternal’s, “The Art of redemption”. Or maybe a classical piece like, say, SLAYER’s, “Seasons in The Abyss”.

Go ahead, try it. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Okay, probably not.

But It’d mean a lot to me if you did. =)
