Dizzying Night Sky

April 22, 2008

Timelapse stars out my windowRecently, I made another attempt at a timelapse video of the stars. The night was a lot clearer, but, unfortunately, it was both too cold and too unpredictable to leave the window open all night, so the light from the street lamps hitting the wall caused significant glare in the image. As you watch this video, try to imagine what it would be like if either the Earth spun this fast, or that you could perceive time this fast. I'm pretty sure I would fall down dizzy any time I looked at the sky. revver(818246) This video is also available on YouTube, Metacafe, Google, Revver, DailyMotion,, Crackle, Stupid Videos, Sclipo and Viddler.
