Amazing time-lapse of Earth rotation & more stunning space videos

Amazing time-lapse of Earth rotation & more stunning space videos

Imagine that you don’t have to go to space to actually see the Earth rotate, does that seem crazy? The mind-blowing timelapse posted on YouTube presents a different perspective showing our planet actually move, while the stars stay in place.

This video is an edit of the timelapse footage made using a Very Large Telescope of the European Southern Observatory (ESO), which allows astronomers to see details up to 25 times finer than with individual telescopes.

From Earth to space, the astronomers from the International Space Station (ISS) have also shared amazing timelapses that dazzle the viewer.

Currently living on the ISS in low-Earth orbit, NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman has been satisfying the curiosity of his Vine subscribers by posting out-of-space timelapses.

In tune with all the recent events, Reid posted a Vine showing the vortex of the super-typhoon Vongfong, the world’s biggest storm this year.

Meanwhile, France-based filmmaker Guillaume Juin made a stunning video making a super-cut of timelapses using NASA footage taken from ISS expeditions

“What does an astronaut see from up there? From the red soil of Africa, the blue water of oceans, to the green lights of the poles and yellow light of human activity, discover, through this journey to space, something astoundingly beautiful and strange at the same time”, Juin said.
