The Night Comes Alive (Synopsis)

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” -Maya Angelou, R.I.P.

It isn’t often that I post a time-lapse video for you to enjoy, but then again it isn’t often that I find one as well-constructed and with the potential to be so educational — to showcase so much about space as it relates to the Earth — as Thomas O’Brien’s fantastic video.

Simply titled “Meteor,” this is Thomas’s first foray into creating a time-lapse video, but don’t let any of that fool you. There’s so much more at play in this video than simply meteors, and the long-exposure images used to construct it have been collected over the past nine years!

    Nice one, Ethan. Thanks to Thomas for his endeavours.
    This shows why some of us put up with frostbite & other nasties just to try to get a decent photo of natures treasures.
