    Hey all!

    I’ve tried a different kind of timelapse, where as opposed to traditional ones, I show how we (the earth) rotate rather than the stars! 🙂

    I hope you like it! Feedback welcome!


    Here’s one with just fixed stars:

    Here’s one with 3 different perspectives of seeing the earth rotating: Stars moving, Startrails and then the earth moving.


    Ugh – sorry no BBCode for Flickr videos >((

    Sumatra, that video is inspired! The static stars/moving Earth idea is brilliant. I’ve sometimes wondered if it was possible to do such a thing and bang! You’ve done it!

    The music is pretty cool, too!

    Andy, thanks for your kind comment! I have been thrilled by all the attention this timelapse has received! Just amazing how many new followers I’ve got! And the comments just had me… lost for words.

    I love the music too!

    Making the 3rd part of this timelapse was absolutely frustrating. It was only out of sheer frustration I finally found a way to do it after 2 days and a lot of growling. My screen took a bit of a beating, but all in all it was well worth it! 🙂
